This review is from: Cornwall in Prehistory (Paperback)Mrs Rowe must be congratulated on her book 'Cornwall in Prehistory'. In one slim volume she has managed to capture the threads of this long period of time and weave them together into a coherent story. In her text she successfully manages to steer the reader through the extremes of both academic dryness and romantic fantasy, whilst retaining both intellectual coherence and the illusive magic of this special part of the world. This work should appeal to both the casually interested visitor to the subject as well as the more knowledgeable student. The clear, concise and current text is perhaps let down a little by the odd typo, the erratic labelling of the photographs in the latter part of the book and by the lack of 'further reading' lists after chapter one. The latter being particularly relevant as some of the references given in the text are not expanded in the bibliography. This is knit-picking and I am sure that these issues will be addressed in subsequent editions.
In short, this book is highly recommended.
