New Article: Jim Leary publishes on past mobility with Martin Bell

Posted on 1 September 2020

"Pathways to past ways: a positive approach to routeways and mobility" published in Antiquity

Ancient footprint with archaeological scale

Jim Leary and Martin Bell publish a new article in Antiquity.

Past trackways and the mobility associated with them have long been a neglected topic of research in Britain—a lack of attention attributable to the publication of Alfred Watkins's The old straight track in 1925. Yet, new interdisciplinary approaches, including from the perspectives of social theory and the sciences, can allow us to move forward. Here the authors offer the first steps towards a positive approach to understanding past mobility.
