Seahenge A uest for Life and Death in Bronze Age Britain review à eBook or Kindle ePUB Of wooden planks set vertically in the sand with a large inverted tree trunk in the middle likened to a ghostly ‘hand reaching up from the underworld’ has now been dated back to around 2020 BC The timbers are currently and controversially in the author’s safekeeping at Flag FenFrancis Pryor and his wife an expert in ancient wood working and analysis have been at the centre of Bronze Age fieldwork for nearly 30 years piecing together the way of life. 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 throughout the other 200 pages descriptions of the excavation process in the fens how Pryor thinks the henges in this area were used what everyday life might have been like but he never managed to bring any of it truly alive for me like he seems to have done for a lot of other folks I felt like I was just left wanting somehow Enjoyable but not great

Seahenge A uest for Life and Death in Bronze Age Britain review à eBook or Kindle ePUB A lively and authoritative investigation into the lives of our ancestors based on the revolution in the field of Bronze Age archaeology which has been taking place in Norfolk and the Fenlands over the last twenty years and in which the author has played a central roleOne of the most haunting and enigmatic archaeological discoveries of recent times was the uncovering in 1998 at low tide of the so called Seahenge off the north coast of Norfolk This circle. What an interesting view of archeological discovery and enterprise in the bronze age One thing that I really took home with this book was the differences in time period of the neolithic throughout the old world in different locations As soon as I determined the time period in Britain I found myself asking if this was the same time period throughout Mesopotamia and other areas of the world and made a sound correlation between Britain and other locations at this time period in terms of development and lifestyle I think the author makes both the archeological aspect and the old world aspect interesting and of course the focus of the Seahenge discovery keeps things well formed and enjoyable I especially enjoyed the final description of the dig towards the end of the book Expect to learn a lot of interesting things about the people of this time period Did you know that you women wore mini skirts and bore mid drifts though the older women were much demure And we thought we were being so original You also get an insight into the homes and tools of the time period as well as the means of travel and some ideas of rituals as best known at this point
