The book that all archaeology buffs have secretly been yearning for! This unique blend of text, anecdote and cartoon reveals, and revels in, thse aspects of the past that have been ignored, glossed over or even suppressed - the bawdy, the scatological and the downright bizarre. Our ancestors were not always serious, downtrodden and fearful creatures. They were human like ourselves and shared our earthy sense of humour that is based on bodily functions, bawdiness and slapstick. So it's time to take the fig leaf off the past and have a long, hard look at the real past - the world that would have had the Victorians reaching for their smelling salts. So if you want to know what your average Egyptian slave thought of pharoah, or a Roman legionary thought of his commander, you will find the answer in Disgraceful Archaeology - in hilarious graphic detail!
