Product description

Review

'Very lively indeed and remarkably perceptive - a quite brilliant and level-headed look at the curious world of archaeology.' Barry Cunliffe, University of Oxford`It is often said that well-written books are rare in archaeology, but this is a model of good writing for a general audience. [The] chapters rattle along, packed with information by never getting bogged down in too much details. The book is full of jokes, but its serious message-that archaeology can be a rich and fascinating subject-it gets across with more panache than any other book I know.' Simon Denison, editor of British Archaeology.
