'The Anatomy of Denmark' is a concise, well illustrated history of the accomplishments and cultural heritage of the people living on what is now Danish territory since the Ice Age. The archaeology and history of the earlier period (up to AD 1200) is given as much weight as the more recent past, unlike standard history books which emphasise written texts and more modern times. The book demonstrates the deep roots of a successful, well protected region through the ages. Strategically situated between two seas, as well as between larger Scandinavia and Central Europe, this populous beautiful country has always been both close to the centres of development and somewhat protected from foreign excesses. A particular talent for social organization, education, management and production has taken small Denmark out into the world ever since the Ice Age. 'The Anatomy of Denmark' is clearly written and lavishly furnished with illustrations and tables. It provides a brief, fact-packed introduction for anyone interested in this small thriving country archaeologist, historian, tourist and business visitor alike.
