About the Author

Francis Pryor is a distinguished archaeologist whose career has included the discovery, in 1982, of Flag Fen, one of the best-preserved Bronze Age sites in Europe. His books include his Britain series (for HarperCollins)- Britain BC, Britain AD, Britain in the Middle Ages and The Birth of Modern Britain, two of which were filmed for Channel 4. In 2010 he published (with Penguin) The Making of the British Landscape. He has appeared frequently on Time Team and has presented a number of programmes for Radio 4. The Lifers' Club is his first work of fiction.


Pryor is that rare combination of a first-rate working archaeologist and a good writer, with the priceless ability of being able to explain complex ideas clearly. This is popular archaeology at its best. * Times Higher Educational Supplement *
Under his gaze, the land starts to fill with tribes and clans wandering this way and that, leaving traces that can still be seen today... Pryor feels the land rather than simply knowing it -- Kathryn Hughes * Guardian *
