    Abstract:
    An archaeological comic introducing 'Sarsen Country', the area of central-southern and eastern England where sarsen stones can be found and have been used by people since the Neolithic period. The poster is drawn and laid out in the style of a railway poster from the inter-war years. It takes the viewer on a journey around the country, calling in at a selection of places where sarsen stones have been used. Sites of interest include prehistoric monuments, Anglo-Saxon churches, nineteenth century garden features, and modern street furniture, amongst others. The poster explains how archaeologists have tended to view the stone in the past, and asks "Is it time for a new guidebook?" This comic was created for the University of Reading's School of Archaeology, Geography, Environmental Science post-grad conference held in May 2018.
