  • Praise for Home: 'Pryor is a master storyteller... polite, informative, madly curious and at times as wide-eyed and cheeky as a schoolboy... Home is a thought-provoking discourse on the changing nature of prehistory family life [and] can be read from cover to cover like a novel'

    BBC History
  • 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

    Guardian
  • A deeply sympathetic and practical engagement with what might have been involved in living in a prehistoric family ... Home was where the quern was

    Times Literary Supplement
  • A fascinating and important story about how our ancestors lived, worked, thought, worshipped and organised themselves.

    Daily Telegraph
  • As archaeologist and broadcaster Francis Pryor explores in his excellently written, semi-autobiographical new book, the family was just as important then as it is now. By exploring what we can learn from the evidence left behind, Pryor also reveals the ways in which archaeology can tell us about "ordinary" lives ... Pryor is a hugely entertaining writer.
