Book Description

1 May 2008
How do we know what ancient Athens was like or how the Aztecs lived? This question is fully answered by Archaeology Detectives, which tells the story of how archaeologists in the past two hundred years have gradually deciphered some of the world's most fascinating ancient sites. It takes the reader on the journey from initial discovery of specific sites or monuments to contemporary understanding of the civilizations that built them.

This book links archaeological techniques with stories of how pioneers deciphered real sites, describing the thrilling process of analysis, frustrations, breakthroughs, and luck.

Fabulous book. Lots of colourful pages helps bring it alive to the reader. My kids love it to bits..... Although my back garden looks like it has a resident mole living in it now! No treasure so far

Bought as a birthday present. It is good apparently because it is internet linked and the 2 compliment each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars So sad that this is out of print in the US. 1 Dec 2012

I use it in my classroom with 5-8 grade students. Clear and concise. It can be used in parts or as a whole. I wish it was easier to get hold of now in the US. I will have to make my copies last.
