About this Item

NYC, Barnes and Noble Books, 1995. 256pp. Hardcover with dj. In fine condition. Archeological discoveries from ancient cave paintings in France to the middle east and far east. Cloth, 256 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), maps, biblio., index; 29 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean fine copy. Richly illustrated with colour plates. "Amazing discoveries such as the tomb of Tutankhamen, the buried city of Pompeii, the cave of Lascaux, and the Terracotta Army may be the headline grabbers, but archaeology is not just about rich burials and treasure, or pharaohs, emperors, and kings. The real thrill of archaeology is the way in which it has unearthed the everyday lives of our ancestors, ordinary people not unlike ourselves. Any given discovery--from a fragment of fossilized bone to a shard of pottery--has the potential to radically alter our picture of the past. This beautifully illustrated volume presents 100 of the world's greatest archaeological discoveries--from rock art to tattooed ice maidens, from mammoth bone houses to Assyrian palaces, from fossil hominids to writing systems, and from caves to shipwrecks. And with the growing battery of tools and techniques. Bookseller Inventory # 2341
