About the Author:

Andrew Ross and Alison Sheridan are curators in the Department of Natural Science, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh.

Review:

The paperback is beautifully illustrated, text easy to follow, and short in its selection but broad in its scope, crossing traditional boundaries in natural and human history, so it's a good read whether you're an entomologist or an artist.' Antenna '... This is a major contribution to our understanding of the material. ... Overall a good read and well worth the modest cover price!' Down to Earth 'In this book, Ross and Sheridan have produced a brilliant addition to the amber literature, of interest to both layman and specialist.' Magazine of the Geologists' Association ' ... It forms a nice standalone book in its own right ... ' Palaeontological Association newsletter No 83 ' ... The "book of the show" is still available and is beautifully illustrated ... Apart from the geology of amber there is quite a lot about its archaeological appearances in Scotland, artistic uses, some advice on spotting fakes and much on the included insects - and, yes, Jurassic Park does get a mention!' The Edinburgh Geologist, Magazine of the Edinburgh Geological Society
