Summary
Here is a spectacular and informative new guide to the fascinating world of archaeology. Superb, full-color photographs of bronzes, buildings, paintings, and pottery offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the world's great civilizations. See a loaf of bread preserved for 2000 years, the first human skeleton ever discovered, a corroded cannon from a shipwreck, an Iron Age roundhouse, and a reconstructed helmet made of gold, silver and bronze. Learn about carbon dating, how to tell the difference between a fake and the real thing, why tombs were plundered, how erosion destroys buildings and the secrets behind standing stones. Discover where the world's first iron bridge was built, the importance of shell middens, how a dig is organized, a "ghost ship's" impression in the sand and how rescue evacuations are carried out, and much, much more! Annotation. Discover the extraordinary world of archeology - and the fascinating techniques used to piece together civilizations of the past
