Romer's best on Egypt?
Taschen high production values as usual.
A Glyn Daniel Bundle - Good writer - of course these overlap somewhat.
|6||UK Archaeologists Biographies.
Right is Wheeler's Still Digging - where he self glorifies more than a bit.
Crawford was the founder of Antiquity and a pioneer of aerial photography. His autobiography entirely omits his left wing political activism.
The Wheeler biography is an astonisher - a charmer but a user of people.
Aubrey and Pit-Rivers Pioneers of different ages.
Kalambo a classic Paleolithic site.
Clark - an older summary in the Thames and Hudson series
Mary Leaky - an autobiography of her archaeology and of course covers her husband and his paleontology as well

Washburn was an influential book in its day. The current received view of erectus, sapiens and Neanderthal was cemented about this time.
Coon - a very controversial book in its day. Coon derived varieties of sapiens from earlier local erectus populations. Accused of racism in his day - but now we accept DNA evidence of other contributions - if not total ancestral lines - with less difficulty.
North American Ethnology Bundle
Indian Fishing - the many techniques of Northeast cost an interesting read in a NZ context.
Ishi - A most memorable and remarkable book. He was the last survivor of his his Californian band - living on covertly his own in his traditional way until taken in by an anthropologist who studied his lifeways with him in the field. Sadly died not long after.
|13||Astro Archaeology and Related
Decoded - is a review copy paper bound. Hawkins was much debunked - and he pushed his case far to far- but some of what he claimed is accepted today.
Richards is a relatively recent account - tho this field has been changing greatly of late
A Little History of Astro Archaeology - is good common sense applied to a field that does not always attract it.
Dorchester - some of the many other henge type sites known. (Without stones) Having read this I was always surprised at how the Time Team folks were always over the moon on the couple of occasions they found new ones - they are not that unusual.
Jennings was a mate of Roger Greens
The White men about the reactions of indigenous people to the colonialist - much of it visual representations
Shapiro - human history with a strong anthropological lean - he was a physical anthropologist
Sahlins was an influential book in its time - arguing that for prehistoric people rarely operated against environmental limits.
