"Prehistoric Britain provides a compact and generally very readable summary of the state of thought within a broad segment of the British archaeological community in the first decade of the 21st century." ( Journal of Field Archaeology, 2009)
"Excellent chapters ... .Needham′s consideration of the exchange of objects over nine millennia to 1000 BC, informed by perspectives drawn in particular from Godelier, is a tour–de–force mixing generalization and pertinent case studies." ( Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, June 2009)
"What a grand surprise! Here is an important study of prehistoric Britain written in clear English!" (CHOICE, June 2009)
"Prehistoric Britain offers an excellent outline of the major themes and approaches that will, no doubt, be the main theatres of debate over the next few years. ... A worthy addition to any bookshelf." (Rosetta, May 2009)
"This contains 14 excellent papers, mostly covering small–scale regional case studies from the early neolithic to the iron age. ... Goldhahn′s tale of barrows and the chapters on houses by Boriæ and Gerritsen are very readable." (British Archaeology, March 2009)
"This collection meets admirably the aims of the Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology series, which seeks to ′immerse readers in fundamental archaeological ideas and concepts ... thereby exposing [them] to some of the most exciting contemporary developments in the field.′ ... An excellent way of taking the pulse of recent British prehistory." (Antiquity, March 2009)
"The book provides a useful introduction to some of the current themes in British prehistoric archaeology. It is well suited to an international audience with an interest in archaeological theory."
Richard Bradley, Reading University
"Wide–ranging, forward–thinking and thought–provoking, these essays will serve both as an excellent starting point for anyone interested in prehistoric Britain and as a stimulus to debate."
Alasdair Whittle, Cardiff University
