This isn’t the best of the Horrible Histories books, but then I am a little jaded by now considering I’ve been working my way through the box set. Still, the Stone Age was interesting enough, it’s just that I’m more of a fan of the Romans, the Vikings and the Middle Ages.

What I did like about this one is that there was a lot of information about archaeology in there, and I think it did a good job of encouraging kids to take up the profession. I always wanted to be an archaeologist as a kid and this book reminded me why, like watching an episode of Time Team. I bet it’s a lot of hard work though, so read this instead.

Unfortunately I just found this too sickly sweet for my liking, which is a shame because it’s the first book that I’ve tried out of my Vintage Mini Moderns box set. It’s also put me off reading any more Alcott, I think I’m just too old and jaded for her style of writing. And her dialogue in particular.
