Full description of the book The Birth of Modern Britain : A Journey Through Britain's Remarkable Recent Archaeology:

From the author of 'Britain BC', 'Britain AD' and 'Britain in the Middle Ages' comes the fourth and final part in a critically acclaimed series on Britain's hidden past The relevance of archaeology to the study of the ancient world is indisputable. But, when exploring our recent past, does it have any role to play? In 'The Birth of Modern Britain' Francis Pryor highlights archaeology's continued importance to the world around us. The pioneers of the Industrial Revolution were too busy innovating to record what was happening around them but fortunately the buildings and machines they left behind bring the PDF period to life. During the Second World War, the imminent threat of invasion meant that constructing strong defences was much more important than keeping precise records. As a result, when towns were flattened, archaeology provided the only real means of discovering what had been destroyed. Surveying the whole post-medieval period, from 1550 until the present day, Francis Pryor takes us on an exhilarating journey, bringing to a gripping conclusion his illuminating study of Britain's hidden past.
