So many extraordinary archaeological discoveries (many of them involving
the author) have been made in the last thirty years that our whole understanding
of British prehistory needs to be updated. So far only the specialists
have twigged on to these developments; now, for the first time, Francis
Pryor broadcasts them to a much wider, general audience.
Aided by aerial photography, coastal erosion (which has helped expose
such coastal sites as Seahenge) and new planning legislation which requires
developers to excavate the land they build on, archaeologists have unearthed
a far more sophisticated life among the Ancient Britons than has been previously
supposed. Far from being the barbarians of Roman propaganda, we Brits had
our own religion, laws, crafts, arts, trade, farms, priesthood and royalty,
the stories of which Francis Pryor tells with passion, wit and intelligence.
