This text describes 100 of the world's most important archaeological discoveries. Alongside the well-known are placed the equally important but less-familiar, all of which have helped our understanding of the past. However, the book acts as more than a catalogue: it is a celebration of the rich variety of subjects that archaeology encompasses - from fossil hominids to writing systems, from lost cities to shipwrecks, and from pre-history to medieval times.
