Overview

The Making of Civilization: History Discovered Through Archaeology by Ruth Whitehouse, John Wilkins

This beautifully illustrated text focuses upon the transition from prehistory to history as told through the work of archaeologists. In cities as far-flung in time as Zhengzhou in 15th-century-B. C. China,Tenochtitlan in Mexico 2,000 years later,and classical Rome and Athens,we see systems of government and religion emerge,art and architecture and writing develop. Like its predecessor,Ascent to Civilization,the present book contains more than 600 photographs,paintings,and maps-300 in color.
