This review is from: The Bones of St. Peter. The Fascinating Account of the Search for the Apostle's Body. (Hardcover)
This is a book which I could not put down. It is very readable and well illustrated, and it needs to be to enable a good understanding of the excavations beneath St Peter's. The geometry can be confusing, even with some knowlege of the basilica, but the ineptitude of the excavations make this a facinating 'detective' story. It reveals much about ancient/early Christian Rome and the twentieth-century Vatican.
