Since his death in 1913, John Lubbock has faded from public memory, yet this remarkable man - a scientist, banker, politician, social reformer, anthropologist and archaeologist - was one of Darwin's key supporters. This new biography by his great-granddaughter examines his career through his archaeological collection, demonstrating how it shaped both his work and personal life. Accessible and informative, it restores Lubbock to his rightful place as a major figure in a debate that reshaped the way humanity thought of itself.
