Overview

New archaeological treasures and finds that reshape our view of the past, recounted by the discoverers themselves.An unprecedented look inside contemporary archaeology, Discovery! reveals the most exciting, significant, and astonishing finds from the last fifteen years. Many of the book's contributiions are written by the discoverers themselves, who give firsthand accounts of their work and assess the significance. They include famous Egyptologists such as Zahi Hawass, Kent Weeks, and Alain Zivie; pioneering underwater explorers such as Franck Goddio; and leading excavators and scietists from America, Britain, China, France, Germany, Itlay, Scandinavia, and elsewhere.Discovery! spans two million years of history, from the latest fossil discoveries that rewrite the story of human origins to wrecks of early submarines and ironclads from the American Civil War. There are revelations about the pyramids of Giza, a just-discovered royal tomb in the Valley of the Kings, and gold-filled burials of Assyrian queens at Nimrud, Iraq. Italy's Ice Man and spectacular Inca mummies from high in the Andes bring us face to face with people from the past, while stunning wall paintings from San Bartolo in Guatemala revolutionize our knowledge of the ancient Maya.International in scope and totally authoritative, the book is illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, many taken at the very moment of discovery.Brian M. Fagan is Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the author or editor of many popular books on archaeology.

Editorial Reviews

KMT Magazine
“Lushly illustrated… sure to delight readers with a broad interest in all things archaeological.”
Library Journal

Readers interested in archaeology must discover this treasure of a book! Written by leading archaeologists (many of whom discovered the objects they are writing about), the book is breathtakingly beautiful, filled with archaeological treasures and histories from around the world. Under the editorial supervision of Fagan (anthropology, emeritus, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara; Floods, Famines and Emperors), who contributes the introduction and two of over 50 articles, the book covers the most important and spectacular archaeological discoveries of the past 15 years and is arranged in seven different sections: "Discoveries from the Ice Age," "Tombs, Graves and Mummies," "Treasures of Ancient Art; Lost Cities," "Enigmas of Ritual and Religion," "Discoveries from the Deep," and finally "Scientific Discoveries." Ranging from hominids in Africa to mummies in Peru and lost cities in China, Discovery!encompasses a range of about two million years of human activity and cultures. With more than 300 color photos, it brings to life the excitement of the work of archaeology and of the civilizations of the past. Accessible and readable for those new to the subjects as well as for those who have formally studied archaeology, it is highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.
