Four stars because, as another reviewer mentions, it's more a guide than a textbook. I would have liked to have known more but perhaps the more is still being discovered.
It is a fascinating guide nonetheless! I felt like something of a pioneer discovering the complexities of domestic life from such a long time ago, in such a remote place albeit through a book - this book. It seems that we have long misunderstood our forebears and their levels of civilisation. I'm astounded and based on this book will visit Skara Brae! (in fact I'm so intrigued (and sure that others would be too!) that I'd like to take a student trip, but from the maps in the book the local area looks a little short of nightlife, so I'm not sure how many would sign up!)
