The name Dilwyn Rees is the pseudonym used by Glyn E. Daniel when writing and reviewing detective stories. Dr Daniel is Fellow and Steward of St John’s College, Cambridge, and a Lecturer in Archaeology in the University.
He , has often broadcast on archaeological subjects and has written The Three Ages, A Hundred Years of Archaeology, The Prehistoric Chamber Tombs of England and Wales, and (with Professor Stuart Piggott) A Picture Book of Ancient British Art, His recreations include field archaeology, travel, and wine-tasting (all three mainly in France whenever possible), golf and squash (both of which he does badly), music - and detective fiction. He believes that detective stories are one of the best forms of light entertainment -but that they must not be taken too seriously.
He writes with his tongue in his cheek, and in The Cambridge Murders, his first detective novel, the reader is not asked to take too seriously either the Cambridge or his Fisher College, or the detection of his amateur sleuth, Sir Richard Cherrington.
