Landscape tells historical story in English countryside

A spring walk in the English countryside can be a history lesson for careful observers. The Time Team's resident landscape archaeologist, Stewart Ainsworth, offers hints on "How to read landscapes like an archaeologist."

Hills, standing stones, isolated villages all have a story to tell in Ainsworth's world. "Ever wondered why there is an old-looking church standing by itself surrounded only by fields with no buildings or village nearby? Probably a medieval village once lay around it, since deserted and forgotten. A walk in the fields close by can often reveal the lumps and bumps of the former streets and homes of the abandoned settlement."
