In Tomb of the Eagles John Hedges describes vividly the tribe that had as its totem the magnificent white-tailed sea eagle. For these people the building and use of the tomb was symbol and expression of their identity. It was here that the dead joined their ancestors-but only after the flesh had been stripped from their bones. The 16,000 human bones recovered tell much about about their stature, physique, illnesses and life expectancy. Indeed, this unprecedented collection gives us a flash of insight into the structure of a living stone age society.
