    [Seahenge A uest for Life and Death in Bronze Age Britain] Download ☆ Francis Pryor Really interesting in parts but I found the title and description on the back somewhat deceptive there's a brief prologue about Seahenge and then Pryor goes back in time to give background on his work in the surrounding area and doesn't get back to talking about Seahenge itself until the last 100 or so pages There's some good stuff

A fascinating book about a key although under reported finding in British history Francis Pryor s writing is engaging witty humble he s uick to admit when he s cocked up or taken the wrong path with a way of thinking and just really interesting In all honesty I m much of a geography fan I m not a fan of history per se ancient Royal lineage eugh Borgia brides eugh ancient civil wars shut up but when history such as this relates to geographical features in landscape such as marshy fenswaterlogged dykes and ditches and the way real people managed to survive in these landscapes my interest is piued The only criticism I have of this book is the over concentration on material regarding wood remnants and the vast amount of time spent collecting collating and recording them when admittedly they didn t really offer up any new findings relating to ancient Britain I m guessing that time and page space was allotted as it was Pryor s wife doing the wood workNevertheless an altogether stimulating read
