'What a superb book this is! Wise, well-informed, judicious and infinitely readable.' -Magnus Magnusson, Scotsman'an utterly splendid book, quite the most brilliantly written, balanced and explanative general work on the Vikings ever to appear in English or...in any language.' -Erik Wahlgren, Scandinavian Studies'A highly readable history.' -Oxford Time'no better book on the Vikings has ever been written, and it is one which every educated person with any interest in history should know about... Readers will be delighted to discover the eloquent and sparkling prose of a natural Welsh bard and storyteller who was one of the shining lights of University College, Cardiff. The man writes beautifully. There are not many history books one can pick up and start reading anywhere just for the sheer enjoyment of literary craftsmanship and even fewer as authoritative as this.' -Lloyds List 13/04/1994

To understand how previous generations of people lived, worked, and played, what is the best research method-digging for facts on the Internet? Boring! the answer lies right beneath our feet: in the dirt. Across the United States and Canada, historical archaeologists dig far below cities and towns for clues about what happened after Europeans arrived. American Archaeology uncovers the stories of Dutch, English, African, Spanish–even Viking–settlers in North America. Some settlers left behind documents such as diaries, letters, maps, and land deeds. Many other, less tidy settlers left their garbage–food bones, tools, broken dishes, buttons, bottles, toys, and gun parts. Archaeologists carefully scrape away soil, layer by layer, to uncover objects used by people long ago. By learning about these excavations and examining a variety of artifacts, young readers learn about U.S. and Canadian history in a fresh and unique way.

James Coleman has emerged in recent years as one of the most important artists of visual postmodernism. His work has transformed critical debates about the status of the image in contemporary culture and influenced an entire generation of younger artists in ways that have not yet been fully acknowledged. Until recently, Coleman has enjoyed relatively little critical attention - in part because of his refusal to comment on his projects or to allow his work to be reconstructed outside of the context of its exhibition.
