The pyramids were already millennia old when the ancient Romans began what eventually would become the modern science of archaeology. This stirring account begins in Roman times and traces the adventures of generations of intrepid men and women who uncovered tombs, deciphered hieroglyphic inscriptions, and brought to light spectacular treasures-all to give us a deeper understanding of Egypt's remarkable civilization. Illustrated with pictures of important discoveries and including facsimiles of archaeologists' maps, sketches, and journal pages, this is an irresistible introduction to the fascinating world of Egyptology.
