5.0 out of 5 stars Apologies for faults - now rectified., 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would like to comment on the printing errors mentioned in the previous review. This was an early Print on Demand book and the errors occurred at the printers, caused by a computer error. Unfortunately, this meant that about a dozen books left the printers before the mistakes could be rectified, which they now have been. Indeed, the book has gone to a second edition. Should anyone have one of these faulty first prints, please return them to the Blackthorn Press for a full refund, including postage, with our apologies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good product overall but needed some work doing on it., 18 Jun. 2014
Overall, a good product at a good price. The only criticism I would make is that it took a long time and a lot of scraping with a Stanley knife to make the arms fit as the studs were covered in excess plastic which had not been trimmed off. Took some brute force in the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Important and up to date synthesis, 12 Dec. 2013
This book presents an important and up to date synthesis of Roman Yorkshire. Patrick Ottaway has spent much of his career as a field archaeologist in York and this volume thus provides an up to date and well informed description of archaeological as well as textual evidence. Its comprehensive coverage will makes this a key work for all interested in the subject, and a starting point for any future study. The location of the area at the interface of the military zone and civil province of Roman Britain also makes Ottaway's study an invaluable account of issues of broader significance within Roman studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete and attractive book., 30 Aug. 2013

It was good to have all Owen's poems in one volume rather than the usual war poems and a useful introduction put the poems in their historical context. An attractive and well priced volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine stories but needed an Introduction., 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fine, eclectic collection of stories which give a feel for cultures beyond our own which no travel programme could match. My main criticism would be (apart from the usual string of typos) is that the collection needed an Introduction. Having not heard the original stories on the radio, it would have been useful to know who actually won the competition - was it the first story in the book - and what criteria the judges used to make their award. Some of the stories did not sit well with the others such as the science fiction story 'The ihole' which was trite compared to the stories which explored the human condition so why was it included? OVerall though, thoroughly recommended.
