This paper argues that by comparison with many other aspects of archaeology trackways and mobility along them have long been neglected in the UK, and that this neglect came about following the publication of Watkins’ The Old Straight Track (1925). Through new strands of evidence from many disciplinary sources, including from both social theory and science, however, we can chart a way forward. We offer here the first steps towards a positivist approach to past mobility.
