TV archaeologist Neil Oliver wants to reintroduce real heroes
NEIL Oliver says he has never done anything brave in his life - and that the same can be said for most modern blokes. So it was with an air of awe that he wrote a book about "manly men".

. . .

But the 41-year-old insists his efforts don't even come close to the heroics he writes about in Amazing Tales For Making Men Out Of Boys.

In it, he recounts the antics of World War II's The Cockleshell Heroes and the Battle of Britain.

Another one not doing much with archaeology, but good for him anyway.
