Description
 
Traces the history of archaeology from its inception in 18th-cent. Pompeii to the present day. Describes the advances made by key figures, such as that by C.J. Thomsen, who had the fundamental notion of the Three Age System, & developments such as carbon-14 dating in the 1950s that finally provided hard dates for the  ages before the invention of writing. Describes personalities of archaeology such as Giovanni Belzoni, J.J. Worsaae, Auguste Mariette, Heinrich Schliemann, Pitt Rivers, Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie & Howard Carter. Addresses the handful of questions that have challenged archaeology since its beginnings: What are the origins of the human race? Are the stories of the Bible true? Did world civilization have one beginning? Illus.
