Bradley's main argument is that the line between domestic life and religious ritual is much more blurred in prehistoric Europe than many archaeologists would like to believe. He makes some very powerful points and quotes some fascinating evidence. If I were to base my rating of the book purely on the points made I would rate it more highly. The argument is sometimes difficult to follow, however. Bradley often presents multiple pieces of evidence without always making clear exactly how they connect to the ongoing argument he is making. He also has a tendency to relate an abundance of detail about the particular archaeological sites he uses as evidence when only some of that detail is relevant to his point. The concluding chapter and summaries at other points of the book alleviate this to some extent, but a more tightly presented argument would have made for much more enjoyable reading.

A fresh and insightful look at what it may have been like to be alive in Bronze Age Europe. Intriguing stuff!
