For between the wars, we read The Dig by John Preston, about the archaeology dig at Sutton Hoo in 1939.

This one I finished. It is short, very easy to read and interesting enough to keep you turning the pages. But, I was left feeling dissatisfied. The overall tone is rather depressing, and it feels like everyone loses. There is no suspense/tension. That which is hinted at never develops. I also found the descriptions had to visualise. I had to look some up to get an idea of what he was on about.

It might have been better as narrative non-fiction.
