A Field Guide to The Archaeology of the Taw and Torridge Estuaries
Man has always used the environment for his own ends and an estuary is a choice place for exploitation. It is a natural resource, a haven, an entrance and an exit, a birthplace and a graveyard for ships.
This guide gives details of all the important sites of the estuary. Geographically, this survey ranges from either side of the estuary mouth, to include the beaches of Westward Ho! and Saunton and the Burrows of Northam and Braunton. Upstream, it goes as far as Barnstaple on the Taw and Annery (Weare Giffard) on the Torridge.
As well as being available from a number of local outlets the book is also available
