Summary:
"Insect remains from archaeological sites can tell us an astonishing amount about the past. This ranges from lists of which species were present, via ... details of the parasitological state of Londoners of the time, to socially and economically significant reconstructions of the environment and climate. ... In this study the author makes us feel much more familiar with the creatures themselves, and presents descriptions of site results, explanations of methodology, and ... conclusions. In addition, we understand how the details of remains for single sites can be woven together into bigger stories. The results from London, with their long time span and geographical range, present an excellent basis for an ... account of this kind."--Publisher description from Website, Sept. 11, 2012, based on book preface.
