Just what I was looking for!,

This review is from: Star Carr: Life in Britain after the Ice Age (Archaeology for All) (Paperback)
I've been searching for a good overview of the Mesolithic period that was accessible to a non-specialist, and I didn't at first consider this because I thought it was going to concentrate just on the Starr Carr site. But I eventually decided to give it a try, and I'm very glad I did. This is a brilliant book, clear, lucid, well-illustrated and up to date, illuminating not only the excavations in Yorkshire, but the Mesolithic society that produced this fascinating place. My one gripe was that it could have been twice as long, and gone into more detail, but for an armchair archaeologist like me, it's a great introduction to the subject.
