"A monumental volume on archaeology." Methodist Recorder "The book's strength lies in its excellent summaries, period by period, of various aspects of material culture. These treatments are illustrated throughout with photographs, line drawings and charts." Anvil "Extremely well written and well organised. ... The pottery section is most useful as it presents in simple format the most salient points of each repertoire with a minimum of examples, very important for non-specialists ... will be most used as advanced text and reference. The many plates of line drawings of pottery, reliefs and objects are very clear." Palestine Exploration Quarterly
