The Cotswold Way crosses some of the most densely populated and varied landscapes from the each period of the past. The route also has some nationally important archaeological sites along, behind and in front of it. This book introduces the serious trail walker or the local ‘single-stretch’ day rambler to the types of archaeological monuments along the Cotswold Way route. It then follows each of the six sections of the route describing the individual sites and their background along the trail. For those who wish to explore the Cotswold plateau behind the route there will be recommended archaeological walks, and for each type of walker the ‘archaeological’ panoramas in front of the Cotswold Escarpment are identified and explained.
