42 of 42 people found the following review helpful By Mr. T. Butcher on 8 Mar. 2004
Format: Paperback
This book looks quite limited from the title but is actually a very good read. Francis is well known in the archaeology world and from his TV shows. In this book he explains, and I reiterate explains, the subject of farming in prehistory (before the Romans came) in a language that is very understandable as well as making a very good read indeed. The book is compelling, so much so that I had problems putting it down. Much archaeology has been written about and some of it is very high-brow and uses so much jargon that it is difficult to understand. No problems here. Plain English, clear thought and clear explanation. If only all archaeology books were like this!
Well done Francis.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By I just had to write on 13 Jan. 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a splendid publication. All too often archaeological books such as this appear accessible but end up being too academic, not this one. Dr Pryor brings the whole subject of prehistoric farming to life. Especially sheep farming, a speciality of his. If you want to understand this period this tome is without doubt a good place to start.

As a (hobby) prehistorian I am always interested in aspects of our past, and Francis Pryor is a favourite. He has original ideas, not always universally accepted but always backed by fact. He expresses these in easily readable style. I recommend this book.

As an Arch/Anth student, I am very satisfied with the format and content of this work. Fully descriptive and academically accurate, yet easy to read and digest.

Fascinating study of the subject by an author with first hand experience of the archaeology and modern practice of livestock farming.
