thinking about archaeology

Books V: signed offprints

When I was a student at the Institute of Archaeology, there used to be a shelf on the worktop by the librarians’ office on which they put stuff they didn’t want. Typically there’d be unsolicited new books and magazines that didn’t fit into the library, and the unwanted remains from collections of older material that had been donated. There were all sorts of interesting things there for a new archaeology student, and I got into the habit of checking the shelf out regularly, and buying bits and pieces for the odd £ or less. Things like these, articles written by three of the then grand old men of British archaeology, still alive and active.
