The Science Times Book of Archeology

by Wade, Nicholas (editor)

Condition: New

This is the best science reporting from the acclaimed weekly section of the New York Times.  Archeologists' discoveries often answer important questions about human origins and human history.  Many patiently and methodically dig in the dirt, turning over rocks, seeking answers, while others use high-tech equipment to explore underwater realms.  Whatever the method, however, the purpose is the same:  to answer the questions that will add depth to our knowledge of times past.

Travel back, through the New York Times and piece together history with John Noble Wilford, Marlise Fowler, William J. Broad, and other award-winning writers.  Trail the footprints of the earliest modern human to the beginning of human history.  Unearth the 5,300-year-old, perfectly preserved Iceman, from an Alpine glacier.  Follow the long debate of American Indian migration.  Visit the ancient sites of Titris, Hoyuk, Pompeii, and Petra.  Stand in awe with French explorers before magnificent, 30,000 year old cave paintings.
