I am a student of cities and urban planning with an interest in African cities, and even though I did not really understand the science of methodologies of archaeologists, this book broke open a whole new field of interest to me. Connah's diligence in peeling away the complex layers of such an ambitious body of work, with all its differentials and contextualities, has produced a wonderful and important work. Thank you Google for allowing me to read at least some of it!
