From early hominid remains found in Kenya to the Woodruff Ossuary in Kansas, clear and accurate descriptions of sites from around the world are supplemented by examples of a wide range of artifacts, with explanations of archaeological terms and excavation techniques. Additional articles focus on different civilizations, peoples, and the lives and achievements of key figures in the history of archaeology. Illustrated with more than 100 maps, diagrams, and black-and-white photographs-some of which have never before been published-this guide offers a superbly rich and authoritative account of a vast, complex, and perennially fascinating subject.
