This is the life story of one of Britain's most influential and colorful archaeologists, whose career has spanned the second half of the 20th century. After earlier short-lived careers in accountancy, the Royal Air Force, photography, and school teaching, Philip Rahtz stumbled into archaeology after the Second World War—and never looked back. Today he is the oldest archaeologist in the country to be still active in digging, writing, and lecturing.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is the life-story of one of Britain's most influential and colourful archaeologists, whose career has spanned the second half of the twentieth century. After earlier short-lived careers in accountancy, the Royal Air Force, photography and school-teaching, Philip Rahtz stumbled into archaeology after the Second World War - and never looked back. Having started as a freelance field archaeologist, he was appointed to a lectureship in the University of Birmingham in 1963, and in 1978 he founded a new department at the University of York. Over the years he has excavated many important sites of all periods in England such as the Saxon and medieval palaces at Cheddar, the Cistercian Bordesley Abbey and several Dark Age sites in Somerset, including Glastonbury Tor and the 500-grave cemetery at Cannington. He has also dug in Yugoslavia, Greece, Spain and Ghana. But Professor Rahtz's story is much more than a catalogue of remarkable excavations. We learn about his family, childhood and adolescence; the progression from backward boy to professor; his philosophy, political stance, his musical and other tastes - and his strongly held views on sexuality. His easy, anecdotal style, spiced with some fairly scandalous stories, will ensure that this is a life-story that will appeal to anyone in archaeology. Seller Inventory # AA79780752419251
