Jonathan Eaton has provided the essential volume for all students of Archaeology, Classical Civilisations and Ancient History by condensing the entire archaeological history of Britain into one accessible volume. The Archaeological History of Britain takes us from the earliest prehistoric archaeology right up to the contemporary archaeology of the present day through the use of key sites to illustrate each key time period as well as a narrative of change to accompany the changing archaeological record. The wide range of evidence utilised by archaeologists, such as artefacts, landscape studies, historical sources and genetics are emphasised throughout this chronological journey as are the latest theoretical advances and practical discoveries, making this the most advanced narrative of British archaeology available.
Jonathan holds a PhD in Ancient History from Queen's University, Belfast where he has also been employed as a tutor in the School of History and Anthropology. Jonathan currently holds the position of lecturer in Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle College. Jonathan is a regular book reviewer for Military History Monthly as well as being published in the journal Greece and Rome. He also contributes to the Wiley Blackwell volumes of Encyclopaedia of War, Encyclopaedia of the Roman Army, and Encyclopaedia of Ancient History.
