The great diversity of Hertfordshires landscapes makes it a particularly rewarding area of study. Variations in farming economies, in patterns of trade and communication, as well as in the extent of Londons influence, have all played a part during the course of the postmedieval centuries, and Hertfordshires continuing evolution is followed into the 21st century.

Lavishly illustrated with maps and photographs, this authoritative work is invaluable reading for all those with an interest in the history, archaeology, and natural transformation of this fascinating county.
