5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Trousers, 3 April 2014
A brilliant pair of trousers from my favourite label. Can be worn with anything from t-shirts to collared shirts and ties. Everyone should have a pair tucked away.
Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the &hellip by Adrian J. Boas
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Overview, 3 April 2014
The archaeology of the crusades is a surprisingly under-researched topic, largely owing to the political and cultural difficulties in assessing much of the material outside Israel. This text (now 15 years old) is a rather authoritative overview of the topic.

If one is studying Levantine castles, however, as I was - there isn't a great deal of material here one couldn't find elsewhere.

A fully updated edition would be a useful undertaking for the author.
The Fall (Penguin Modern Classics) by Albert Camus
The novel is excellent. Leaving that to one side - (who are we to review novels of this nature ?) I will briefly discuss the edition.

Firstly, the book itself is incredibly flimsy. The novel is short (just shy of 100pp) but that is not an excuse for an edition that looks like it came free with a Sunday newspaper. Penguin's dull editions have become a matter of serious irritation for me. Just because something is cheap doesn't mean it has to be ugly.
