Book Description

28 Feb 2001
Since 1994, when the first "Time Team" program was broadcast, archaeology has been brought to life for millions of people by Victor Ambrus and Mick Aston. Victor has produced hundreds of sketches and drawings of archaeological sites and the lives of those who would have inhabited them. For the first time, his drawings of individual excavations have been brought together to provide a dramatic chronological survey of British history--from Stone Age to modern via the Romans, the Vikings, and more. Add to this Mick Aston's lively explanations and photographs, and you have an archaeological collaboration which is guaranteed to delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb drawings from Time Team by Victor Ambrus 21 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This great little book includes a good range of Victor's historical drawings, many of which are from Channel 4's Time Team programme. The drawings really help to bring the past to life, and there is a very helpful commentary by Mick Aston.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recreating the past - Excellent! 17 May 2009
This is a great book if you are in to history and what things actually looked like at the time. Victor Ambrus is a brillient historical artist - I first became aware of him through the TV program "Time Team". One of the best uses of this book that I have seen is to use it as a good pictorial basis for historical modelling or recreation - I can't recommend it enough. Its a shame that it appears to be currently out of print and that I had to get it secondhand through Amazon marketplace.
If you are in to your History and good accurate drawings get this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recreating the Past 7 Nov 2009
Well done book with wonderful illustrations. A must for anyone interested in history and/or archeology. Even a genealogist might find it of interest to give a window into the living conditions in a specific time period.
