Clive Gamble

  • One of the UK's foremost archaeologists chronicles the landmark discovery of evidence of human antiquity during the Victorian era
  • Explores not only the discovery itself, which proved a major breakthrough in prehistoric studies, but the personalities of the 'time revolutionaries' John Evans and Joseph Prestwich and their contemporaries
  • Accessibly written to provide a unique insight into the lives of scientific pioneers and the history of ideas that have changed how humans understand themselves
