Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Pryor's performance in this book remains a hugely entertaining one.’ Sunday Telegraph‘[The book lets in] new and fascinating light.’ Scotsman'Francis Pryor is that rare combination of a first-rate working archaeologist and a good writer, with priceless ability of being able to explain complex ideas clearly…Herein lies a great pleasure of Pryor's writing…The author's eclectic interests and his passion for a past he considers deeply relevant to the present drive “Britain in the Middle Ages”. This is popular archaeology at its best: engaging, knowledgeable and provocative, driven by the author's zestful, insatiable curiosity. One can only hope that Pryor makes good his threat to write a book on the archaeology of the 20th century. It will be an eye-opener.'’ Times Higher Educational Supplement
