The World Atlas of Archaeologyby Nick Constable, Brian M. Fagan (Other), Oliver Frey (Other)
Artifacts, relics, bones, and ruins provide us with firsthand evidence and irrefutable proof of the practices of historic civilizations. From the pyramids of Egypt to the salt mines of Hallstatt in Austria, archeological discoveries have revealed both the similarities and the enormous differences between us and the earlier eras of mankind. Also included are comprehensive descriptions of all the major excavations from each continent, over 200 color illustrations of unearthed treasures, detailed maps pinpointing each archeological site of significance, as well as a continuous timeline of dates and events.
Examining archeological sites from Iceland to Polynesia and piecing together a picture of life from 1000 B.C. to the present day, The History of Archeology is a complete record of life on earth.
