A Bookish Indulgence.

It is out-of-date. The ideas inside are outmoded and discredited...

I know this, but it is still hugely interesting to read this forty year old archaeological book. There are fold-out plans, diagrams and 32 plates of objects I've never seen before...from the masterful

and incredible

to the grotesque

and the functional.

...all featuring Sir Mortimer Wheeler's imagination... and feeding mine.
