The Archaeology & Developing Landscape of Ropsley and Humby, Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire Archaeology & Heritage Reports Series: No. 2.
This attractive volume presents the results of a detailed and comprehensive archaeological and historical survey of Ropsley and Humby in 1979.
The survey results chart the development of a parish which straddles limestone heath and boulder clay terrains. Evidence was found to suggest that the latter has been wooded for much of the time although it was used as a repository for cremations and tools associated with funerary associations, particularly in the Later Neolithic and Bronze Age. Two urn cemetries of the later period (Ropsley and Old Somerby) were discovered through fieldwalking and later excavated.
