The River Wye


prehistory: later prehistory


From the Neolithic, people began to construct monuments that are still visible today.  Without archaeological investigation these are not always datable to a more precise period than just 'prehistoric'. There are more sites classified as 'prehistoric' on the Herefordshire Sites and Monuments database than are ascribed to any of the more specific periods.
