I've spent the past couple of decades studying life in prehistoric societies, so I come to books like this with some skepticism as to whether the author will glorify, demonize, or just make a mess of his/her depiction. But I have to say that Mr. Robinson does a great job of providing a balanced and accurate view of how our ancestors probably lived. I won't go into detail here, but suffice it to say that I read nothing here that made me think he didn't have a firm grasp of the academic literature, and much that confirmed that he did. A wonderful book.
