Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Written with pace and passion…immensely readable.’ Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph

‘It bounds along, wonderfully enlivened by Pryor’s earthy enthusiasm. If you want to be introduced painlessly to the fascinating debates surrounding our British past, then “Britain BC” is the book for you.’ Barry Cunliffe, New Scientist

‘Francis Pryor is a modern field archaeologist with a reputation second to none. He has written a book as successful and exciting as its ambition is huge…lucid and engaging.’ Alan Garner, The Times

‘There are enough curious facts, contentious theories and bizarre hypotheses here to hold the interest of anyone concerned with the unique and peculiar story of these islands.’ Independent on Sunday

‘Beautifully written, exciting and extremely good…an essential read.’ British Archaeology

Praise for Francis Pryor’s television series ‘Britain BC’:

‘Fascinating…the evangelical Pryor paints a vivid portrait of pre-Roman society that tackles received wisdom about what was going on here in the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Pryor leaps about the country at a cracking pace, his big personality making sure we never get bored by the scant and rarefied scraps that are his stock-in-trade.’ Observer

About the Author

Dr Francis Pryor, author of the acclaimed ‘Seahenge’, ‘Britain BC’, ‘Britain AD’ and ‘Britain in the Middle Ages: An Archaeological History’, has spent thirty years studying the prehistory of the Fens. He has excavated sites as diverse as Bronze Age farms and religious sites, field systems and entire Iron Age villages, as well as barrows, ‘henges’ and a large ceremonial centre dating to 3800 BC. He is President of the Council for British Archaeology, and frequently appears on Channel 4’s popular archaeology programme ‘Time Team’. In 2003 he wrote and presented a two-part television series on ‘Britain BC’, and in 2004 made a three-part series on ‘Britain AD’.
