The World's Most Significant Sites and Cultural TreasuresBook - 2007
Archaeologists help us to understand the rich and long history of humankind by sifting through the remains of earlier cultures and civilisations. They use their discoveries to reconstruct the past, from the basic level of what people wore and ate, to the more complex level of how long-lost societies were ordered. Archaeology is a vast, fascinating and dynamic endeavour and new techniques provide us with ever-increasing insights into the mysteries of the past. ARCHAEOLOGICA presents a lavishly illustrated and detailed overview of the history and techniques of archaeology and incorporates the latest findings from around the world. It brings the strangeness and the wonder of ancient people and forgotten times vividly to life.
