Archaeologists' discoveries often answer burning questions about human history. Many patiently and methodically dig in the dirt, turning over rocks, seeking answers, while others use high-tech equipment to explore underwater areas. All their methods serve the same purpose: to answer the questions that will add depth to our knowledge of times past. Travel back through The Times and piece together the past with John Noble Wilford, Marlise Fowler, William J. Broad, and other award-winning writers; trace the footprints of the earliest modern human to the beginning of human history; follow the long ensuing debate before the discovery of Monte Verde as scientists search for the first Americans; visit the ancient cities of Tritis Hoyuk, Pompeii, and Petra; glide across the belly of the Mediterranean to hunt for clues about a bygone trade route with the world's smallest and deepest diving submarine; and explore past civilizations and ancient cultures. Updated and expanded, "The New York Times Book of Archeology" is the perfect book for students, anyone interested in the development of culture, and all those fascinated with the course of human history.
