5.0 out of 5 stars Farmers in Prehistoric Britain, 8 Mar 2004

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid, 13 Jan 2008
This review is from: Farmers in Prehistoric Britain (Paperback)
This is a splendid publication. All too often archaeological books such as this appear accessible but end up being too academic, not this one. Dr Pryor brings the whole subject of prehistoric farming to life. Especially sheep farming, a speciality of his. If you want to understand this period this tome is without doubt a good place to start.

This review is from: Farmers in Prehistoric Britain (Paperback)
As a (hobby) prehistorian I am always interested in aspects of our past, and Francis Pryor is a favourite. He has original ideas, not always universally accepted but always backed by fact. He expresses these in easily readable style. I recommend this book.
