Archaeology is a scientific discipline, but it has potent links to the imagination, to biography, and to poetry. This extraordinary, genre-defying book offers both a history of archaeology and the author's personal history in archaeology. Its subjects range from the last Ice Age to the destruction of the wildwood, from the first farmers to the Industrial Revolution, as Morris unearths the psycho- geography of humanity in England and offers a heartfelt meditation on the history beneath our feet.
