From front cover flap: "To the Europeans who first encountered North America, the world's third largest continent seemed a mysterious, empty land, with no history. For centuries to follow, the achievements of its aboriginal population remained in the shadows, overlooked by explorers, colonists, and historians alike. But what they missed has now been remarkably recovered by the diligent investigations of modern archaeology, and indisputable evidence of the great contributions that the American Indians have made to the cultural history of the world is present in this engrossing volume."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10-12-- New information on the origin, customs, and culture of Native Americans would be a welcome addition to any library. Unfortunately, it is not provided by this book. The title itself is misleading, since the majority of the book is not devoted to archaeological discoveries or techniques at all, but rather to an unsuccessful attempt to condense and survey all of the major cultures of North American Indians. What archaeologists have added to our knowledge of these cultures is all too briefly alluded to in each chapter, but exactly how these discoveries illuminate the everyday lives of ancient Americans is not demonstrated. Snow does cover in some detail certain techniques, such as radio-carbon dating and dendrochronology (use of tree growth rings to determine dates), but their use by real archeologists is not demonstrated. The illustrations are of average quality; there are too few maps and those that do appear are confusing and poorly explained. Due to the broad generalizations and technical writing style, this is not a useful addition to collections serving young people. --David N. Pauli, Northern Waters Library Service, Ashland, Wis.

Book Description ACLS Humanities E-Book. Hardcover. Condition: New. 288 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 1.0in.The Archaeology of North America tells the fascinating story of how archaeologists investigate the orgins and prehistory of American Indians. More than 12, 000 years ago, people we know as Paleo-Indians traveled from Siberia to Alaska across a land bridge that no longer exists. Archaeologists excavating at rock shelters and other sites across the continent have found many signs of the Paleo-Indian way of life, including the distinctive spearpoints with which these first Americans hunted giant game animals. Using tree-ring, radiocabon, and other dating methods, archaeologists can analyze the pottery and houses, tools and temples that they have uncovered. As a result, we know that the descendants of the Paleo-Indians and later migrants from Asia spread throughout the Americas. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781597407847
