The Dig by John Preston

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Dig is based on the true story of a hugely consequential 1939 archaeological excavation of ancient mounds, on the property of Edith Pretty, at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk, England. I spent more time checking actual events than reading the book and following various archaeological blogs and Twitter sites. No prizes for guessing where my next road trip will be.
