Considered to be the classic introduction to the subject, this third edition has been carefully revised and updated to take account of the developments in the subject, and includes an extensive newly compiled bibliography and twice the number of illustrations as in previous editions.

Industry Reviews

This book may fairly be described as indispensable to anyone researching local history. Dr Hoskins puts his learning at the service of fellow workers; not only does he tell them what is to be found and how to go about finding it, he also encourages and directs them to the most profitable kind of inquiry. His book should have a most wholesome influence.' The Times Educational Supplement
