Milton Keynes Monographs

Earthworks at Bradwell Bury
Medieval earthworks at Bradwell Bury.

These are detailed excavation and research reports from archaeological investigations carried out before and during the building of the ‘new city’ of Milton Keynes between 1971 and 1991, when large areas of farmland, woodland and open countryside were taken for development.

The scale of change providsed an unprecedented opportunity for the study of historic landscape and archaeological sites of all periods from prehistory to the 19th century. As a result many previously unknown sites were identified.

The books listed here chart the major excavations and related research. Written in the late 1980s and 1990s, they are gradually going out of print – but a full set is available for reference in the Society's Library in Aylesbury.

The publications are large-format (A4) paperback volumes, with many drawings and photographs.
