Jonathan Eaton has provided the essential volume for all students of Archaeology, Classical Civilisations and Ancient History by condensing the entire archaeological history of Britain into one accessible volume.
The Archaeological History of Britain takes us from the earliest prehistoric archaeology right up to the contemporary archaeology of the present day through the use of key sites to illustrate each key time period as well as a narrative of change to accompany the changing archaeological record. The wide range of evidence utilised by archaeologists, such as artefacts, landscape studies, historical sources and genetics are emphasised throughout this chronological journey as are the latest theoretical advances and practical discoveries, making this the most advanced narrative of British archaeology available.
Avoiding Jargon, Eaton writes more like a historian than an archaeologist. Drawing strongly on Hadrian's Wall and Vindolanda, his account of the Roman period - one of nine chapters - makes particularly engrossing reading...what a delight is the author's dedication to this parents - in memory of 'a Christmas Eve long ago when they stayed up late into the night to make a Roman army costume for a little boy.' Lovely.The Northern Echo
Takes readers from the earliest prehistoric remains - dating back to almost 800,000 years ago, through to contemporary archaeology of the present day - using evidence such as genetics, landscape studies, inscriptions and artefacts.Blackpool Gazette
