"Hong Kong, for a small area, has had more archaeological research and publication over the last century than any similar location. Because of its central position its history is important for a much wider area." -- Professor W. G. Solheim, Archaeological Studies Program, University of the Philippines and Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, University of Hawaii "Meacham transports the reader from the early 'gentleman amateurs' to the recent phase of 'rescue archaeology', assembling the diverse findings to chronicle Hong Kong's rich cultural heritage. A compelling read, and indispensable reference work." -- Raynor Shaw, geologist, travel guide writer, and co-author of Hong Kong Landscapes: Shaping the Barren Rock"
