Summary
  • Written by the most authoritative scholars from around the world, a massive treasurehouse of information on all aspects of archaeology, from pre-history to the present day. As new civilizations have been unearthed, languages have been deciphered, and the antiquity of human life has been extended to almost unimaginable depths. Yet there remains a core belief that only archaeology can reveal the evidence of the whole human story from prehistoric to historical times
  • Encyclopedia of Archaeology: History and Discoveries explores the archaeologists, sites, debates, techniques, methods, and issues that are central to the global practice of archaeology. These richly illustrated volumes trace the development of the field from the ancient Greeks to the present day. Through detailed tours of major excavation sites from all over the world - Chichen Itza, Machu Picchu, Ephesus, Pompeii, the tomb of Tutankhamun - as well as more obscure sites like Brzesc Kujawski in Poland, readers gain an appreciation for the inherent challenges all archaeologists share in locating, recovering and making sense of evidence of past human lives
