Product description


Fascinating and inspired...[an] absorbing and highly original book.
-- Literary Review

Hauser's biography casts a sideways shadow on the Britishness we are now trying to define. -- The Times

Kitty Hauser has produced a brilliant biography, dealing not only with the man but also the age.
-- Current Archaeology

The fact that Kitty Hauser has managed to construct such a compelling read ... represents a triumph. -- The Sunday Telegraph

[A] cautionary tale of hubris and ideology, told with imagination and wry sympathy. -- The Sunday Times

[A] powerful beautifully focused biography. -- Mail on Sunday

[An] impressive piece of intellectual history; strangely moving, and impeccably written.
-- The Independent

[It] resurrects an intriguing character from the history of archaeology...[and] recreates a vanished way of looking at history itself. -- BBC History Magazine

About the Author

Kitty Hauser is the author of "Stanley Spencer" and "Shadow Sites: Photography, Archaeology and the British Landscape."
