5.0 out of 5 stars A Must buy for a General overview of British Archaeeology, 15 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Archaeology of Britain: An Introduction from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Industrial Revolution (Paperback)
Excellent overview of British archaeology from Paleolithic to modern. Although more leaning towards the prehistory of Britain, most periods are well covered and the detail of certain sections is excellent: in particular the Mesolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age sections show great summaries within a small amount of text. The post-Anglo Saxons sections are also well written, although this period seems less well-represented than the prehistory. The book also reflects good, up-to-date thinking on these subjects. Ideal for A-level and above, it is also well suited to the individual who wants a more detailed overview on periods within Archaeology without having to read heavy, specialised texts. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT ACADEMIC INTRODUCTION, 22 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Archaeology of Britain: An Introduction from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Industrial Revolution (Paperback)
As an archaeology student this book came highly recomended to me. Since purchasing it I have realised why! This is a comprehensive chronological guide to the history of Britain through archaeology. From the very dawn of British pre-history to the latest fields of industrial Britain, this book looks at the surviving archaeological evidence and the way it has been uncovered . It is not the best guide to methods, but it is not meant to be. It is however an essential guide to British Archaeology and a must for all students of the subject and interested laypeople.

This review is from: The Archaeology of Britain: An Introduction from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Industrial Revolution (Paperback)
This book is excellent for anyone wanting a general introduction into archaeology, but also for anyone wanting to look at specific time periods in British history, with in depth studies by some of the leading archaeologist in these fields.
This book has good studies of individual artifacts and sites, and also provides a good history of the relevant time period.
Futhermore this book also provides a good evaluation of social, economic and political factors of these archaeological sites.
This book is clear and concise which pictorial representation which makes it easy for anyone studying the field or with a general interest to understand.
I can't praise this book enough as an introdutory book, you wont find a better review of these periods without looking at books dedicted to the specific areas.

This review is from: The Archaeology of Britain: An Introduction from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Industrial Revolution (Paperback)
A delight of a book for even a lay man who is interested in archaeology. Very easy to follow with detailed information on Britain·s Greek·s settling. The graphs and all the details are very well presented. An easy book for anyone with a curious mind of how and why the peoples of Britain came to be,,
