9780241955888: Home: A Time Traveller's Tales from Britain's Prehistory

Here, Francis Pryor explores the first 9,000 years of life in Britain, from the retreat of the glaciers to the Romans' departure. Tracing the settlement of domestic communities, he shows how archaeology enables us to reconstruct the evolution of habits, traditions and customs. But this, too, is Francis Pryor's own story: of his passion for unearthing the past, from Yorkshire to the west country, Lincolnshire to Wales, digging in freezing winters, arid summers, mud and hurricanes, through frustrated journeys and euphoric discoveries. Evocative and intimate, Home shows how, in going about their daily existence, our prehistoric ancestors created the institution that remains at the heart of the way we live now: the family.

About the Author:

Former president of the Council for British Archaeology, Francis Pryor has excavated sites as diverse as Bronze Age farms, field systems and entire Iron Age villages. His previous books include Britain BC and Britain AD.

Review:

Under his gaze, the land starts to fill with tribes and clans wandering this way and that, leaving traces that can still be seen today ... Pryor feels the land rather than simply knowing it Guardian Pryor is that rare combination of a first-rate working archaeologist and a good writer, with the priceless ability of being able to explain complex ideas clearly. This is popular archaeology at its best The Times Higher Education Supplement Pryor clearly loves this country in the marrow of his bones Scotsman A deeply sympathetic and practical engagement with what might have been involved in living in a prehistoric family ... Home was where the quern was. -- Bee Wilson Times Literary Supplement A fascinating and important story about how our ancestors lived, worked, thought, worshipped and organised themselves. Daily Telegraph As archaeologist and broadcaster Francis Pryor explores in his excellently written, semi-autobiographical new book, the family was just as important then as it is now. By exploring what we can learn from the evidence left behind, Pryor also reveals the ways in which archaeology can tell us about "ordinary" lives ... Pryor is a hugely entertaining writer. historyrevealed.com
