Back on January 7th Marcia did a review of the book, Lives In Ruins, by Marilyn Johnson. It looked really good, so I bought the book through abebooks and when I finished The Tudors, I read it. I am happy to say that I found the book also very interesting! It was a delightful thumbnail sketch journey into different aspects of the archaeology world, and though I did not agree with the few evolution-based comments made by the book, the rest of it was really wonderful! It was well done, well researched and easy to read. Since I re-read last year Irving Stone's The Greek Treasure (a historical novel based on the lives of the Schliemanns who excavated Troy and other sites), this was a fun follow-up. Thank you, Marcia for a great review that allowed me hours of pleasure reading a book I otherwise may never have heard of!
