If you look at any part of the British landscape and dig down, studying it in detail, you’ll find that people have lived in that landscape for tens of thousand of years. Landscapes of Power is about the archaeological excavations carried out in advance of the development of Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in West Somerset, England. It captures the whole story of the archaeology of the area, from prehistoric settlement remains and evidence of Iron Age and Roman farming practices to the discovery of an important Dark Age cemetery.
