Very interesting, readable look into archaeology in the early 20th century. I usually steer clear of archaeology and history books that weren't more recently published because so much changes in terms of how different fields approach their work, but it's an interesting venture in terms of historiography and was a fun read.

A nice little book. The illustrations show some of my favourite objects in the British Museum: The Ram in the Thicket, The Game Boards and the Standard of Ur.

The short section on royal burial sacrificial was particularly interesting.
