Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is the first book for a decade in which prehistoric Britain has been tackled by a single author with a single vision. It is readable throughout and has excellent and wide-ranging illustrations. This is an admirable guide for anyone who wishes to see the current state of prehistory in Britain.' - Current Archaeology

'Excellent and readable, and informed by a love of the land.' - Financial Times

'A lively up-to-date introduction.' - Oxbow News

'With a wide-ranging bibliography and index, Darvill's book provides a pleasing introduction to the story of British prehistory.' - TLS

'Tim Darvill has shown that there is always a place for a well-written account of the subject that makes effective use of modern approaches.' - British Archaeological News

'...an attractive, appropriately priced and well-pitched volume...' - - Antiquity

Format: Hardcover
Tim Darvill's book is still useful to those of us studying prehistory in Britain, even though it was published back in 1987. It si still a useful reference.

Scholarly but readable, full of astonishing revelations about the accomplishments of very ancient cultures. This is the book to read if you want real information objectively presented.
