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.
