Too clinical, dry and fact regurgitative for my taste. There are a lot of random facts thrown in that could have probably been pared out, for example that a piece of glass stuck in the mortar in a floor would be found 300 years later by archaeologists working on the property. As someone with a degree in archaeology myself, I would normally find that fact interesting except that it just seemed irrelevant to the ongoing story. Little things like that were what kept this book from being as interesting to me as I thought it had seemed at first.
