Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
President of the Council for British Archaeology, Pryor amply demonstrates his love for archaeology in this highly readable tribute to the "Wetland Revolution." The title refers to a site discovered when it began emerging from the waters near Norfolk, England, in 1998. Pryor labored to understand and save the timbers that form this aquatic version of Stonehenge. He leads up to the story of Seahenge with an explanation of why and how he became an archaeologist, followed by lengthy discussions of the prehistory of Britain as illuminated by his investigations. He thereby establishes the context of Seahenge in both its uniqueness and its representation of prehistoric Britain. This book is top-notch in bringing vividly and clearly to life the personal thrill of archaeological discovery and the world of prehistoric people. Highly recommended for libraries of all kinds.
