Spanning multiple eras across the entire globe, this comprehensive book provides wonderful introduction to archaeology and the discoveries which have changed our world.

Piece by painstaking piece, archaeology has helped us to rewrite the history of Homo sapiens. Gaynor Aaltonen digs deep into major expeditions and the artifacts they uncovered, from the forgotten Anasazi empire of the American southwest to the discovery of King Richard III's remains beneath a Leicester car park.

Topics include:
• Submerged cities, from Jamaica's Port Royal to Italy's Bacoli.
• Technological advancements such as carbon dating
• Native American structures including "Montezuma Castle"
• Mayan and Aztec city-states

This book provides an expansive overview of human history, told through the materials we have left behind.
