KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of the recent. Testimony of the Spade now gives us ""a world panorama of life in the Second Millennium, B. C."" or the years 2000 to 1000 B. C. Converting volumes full of archaeology into layman's terms, recreating life as it supposedly was, the author takes us through Mesopotamin, the primitive Scandinavian farms and woods, over to Asia, up to the Arctic and so on. The book ends with the collapse of the old empires with hints of the coming , Greek and Roman worlds. A fascinating, well crafted book.
