Product description


A compelling range of brilliance, imagination and eccentricity, conveying not just a sense of what being an archaeologist involves, but of how much archaeology has achieved as a contribution to human understanding. As well as in the design and image selection that make this book a pleasure to hold, it strength lies in its writers. --British Archaeology

Whether you are interested in the desert romance of Ur of the Chaldees or the recreation of Viking ships in Roskilde, this gloriously illustrated book is one you savour. --Minerva

An impressive feat ... a book that is so much more than the sum of its parts - and what parts they are. --Current Archaeology

About the Author

Brian Fagan is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among his books are Discovery!, Ancient North America, The Complete Ice Age and The Great Archaeologists, all published by Thames & Hudson.
