Right at the start of the Mires Project in 2010 the Dartmoor Society identified that there should be a “library search” of all published literature relating to peat on Dartmoor as a normal procedure before embarking on any major research Project.
This was originally never done, however, later on there was a change of heart and Lee Bray, Head of Archaeology at the Dartmoor National Park Authority, has been instrumental in making this project now happen.
The Dartmoor Society are delighted to announce that “Dartmoor’s Peatland Heritage – A Bibliography” has just been published by the Cornwall Archaeological Unit. The Society is very proud to convey that we contributed £1,000 towards the funding of this topical initiative; this has been acknowledged on page 4.
The authors, namely Graeme Kirkham and Ralph Fyfe have done an excellent and very thorough job and their findings are now available in their report.
