Reviews & Quotes

"'This is a sound book, and one that is fashionably svelte and pretty.'"
Dr Rob Ixer
Current Archaeology

"Overall the book is a refreshing read (though some may find the lack of an index frustrating), full of new information and ideas, and made possible by the team's readiness to tackle complex questions, and the once in a life-time opportunity they were granted to undertake new excavations."
