I read "The Sign and the Seal" several years back and thought that it was very entertaining but then when I started to read other material in the same genre.. the difference between archaeology and what he does became clear. He is a good writer, and you DO need some degree of speculation in any new discovery however I think he goes overboard in his speculation..
Perhaps I'm just jealous.. Could I but write that way, I would have no need of a "normal" job!
