Description

In this book George Evans sets out to explain the special importance of the oral tradition on which he has relied. The memories of the old men and women of the village, born perhaps between 1880 and 1895, supplement and humanise the documentary evidence of the historian and the material evidence of the archaeologist.  With 26 chapters over 4 sections: Craftsmen, Agriculture, The Village, Migrant Workers. 29 illustrations.
