Loved reading this little tome It was like having a conversation with Francis Pryor about things I care about uite passionately His open and honest approach to archaeology and prehistory means that he can consider out of the box ideas which means that he can pose some interesting and very thoughtpoking analysis that makes much sense to me than the traditional historical analysis that I learned in school I remember the first time I went to a prehistory site with my history teacher in grammar school I am not sure where we went but I lived in Grantham at the time and this was a day long field trip which included a visit to the Roman villa near Leicester The villa was amazing but it was that ancient hill fort that caught my imagination Ever since I have read and visited various prehistory locations throughout Great Britain Stonehenge Avebury and most r

summary Seahenge A uest for Life and Death in Bronze Age Britain review Seahenge A uest for Life and Death in Bronze Age Britain Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Francis Pryor ¶ 3 read & download 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.
