Overview

This book is ideal for anyone wanting an exciting archaeological read which will not make any demands in the way of deciphering complex tables of scientific results, but which nevertheless gives a rich flavour of how modern techniques are used by archaeologists to study the religious and spiritual beliefs of ancient peoples, from the last Ice Age to the Spanish conquest of Mexico in the sixteenth century. From Stonehenge to South Africa, from Egypt to Eastern North America, Fagan recounts, in compelling style, how we have arrived at our contemporary understanding of these important archaeological sites.
