Lost Cities of the Maya

By Claude Baudez and Sydney Picasso

London: Thames & Hudson, 1992 175 pages including the index. Buried deep in the Central American jungle, the mysterious ruined metropolises of the Maya were a source of wonder to the early explorers who stumbled across them: were these extraordinary pyramids and palaces the work of gods or men? For three long centuries the mystery only deepened; but as artists, photographers and archaeologists gradually pieced together the whole picture, romantic conjecture gave way to scientific fact - and the true inhabitants of these elaborate sites were finally revealed.

Hamlyn History of Archaeology

By Maev Kennedy

London: Hamlyn, 1998 Binding decoative red cloth with white lettering on spine: decorated with black figures similar to cave paintings. Dj has some slight creasing at the top; now protected inside a cover. This book looks at both the extraordinary legacy of the world's great civilizations, and the scholars who devoted their lives to uncovering and interpreting it. The archaeological sites span the centuries and the globe: from the rock paintings of Stone Age man in Africa and Australia, the enigmatic stone monuments of Bronze Age Europe, the Egyptians and Mycenaeans, the Aztecs and Incas of South America, to the matchless bronzes and terracotta armies of China. The personalities are equally colourful: John Aubrey, 17th century gossip and scholar; Giovanni Belzoni, circus strongman turned Egyptian tomb robber; General Pitt Rivers, the career soldier who laid down the ground rules for modern scientific archaeology with military precision; Heinrich Schliemann, the self made millionaire driven by his passion for Homer to find Troy. In each of the ten sections, the civilizations are examined through feature spreads on major archaeological finds. Key discoveries have illuminated lost cultures, including the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt, the palace of Knossus on Crete, the smothered Roman city of Pompeii, the Great Temple of the Aztecs under modern Mexico city, and the only Viking site in North America. Illustrated with over 200 photographs and drawings, the Hamlyn History of Archaeology is an invaluable guide to world archaeology.

Since the last outline was published, in 1939, intensive research in Southern Britain, mainland France and particularly in the Islands themselves, has greatly changed the picture. The book includes a brief historical account of archaeological research in the Islands, from the pioneer work of the Lukis family at the beginning of the 19th century to the current achievements of the Societies of the four principal Islands. It began as a survey of the prehistoric monuments, at the suggestion of these Societies, and has been written in consultation with them.
