good reading - only partial maps
Having read about 60 pages so far, I find the author's style lively and engaging: a good read. However, I'm very disappointed that the fold-out maps of the excavations were NOT folded out and given the special attention needed so that they would appear readable in this e-book version. Rather, they remain folded up, and only a tiny bit of each map, which originally faced upwards, is visible. Can this be remedied??
