Dartmoor became one of Britain's first National Parks in 1951, and many visitors see it as a pristine, untrammelled wilderness. Yet it is actually a carefully managed landscape - and has been since the Neolithic. This archaeological survey charts its history from prehistoric times through the Roman and medieval periods to the present. Extensively illustrated with colour photographs, maps and plans, it demonstrates how Dartmoor has been shaped by human activity, and examines the environmental challenges it faces today.
