More About This Title Living Archaeology


This is the life story of one of Britain's most influential and colorful archaeologists, whose career has spanned the second half of the 20th century. After earlier short-lived careers in accountancy, the Royal Air Force, photography, and school teaching, Philip Rahtz stumbled into archaeology after the Second World War—and never looked back. Today he is the oldest archaeologist in the country to be still active in digging, writing, and lecturing.
