Product Description:

From the new National Geographic Investigates series, this volume spotlights archaeological finds from ancient China. The book opens with an introduction to the land and the dynasties that ruled it, accompanied by a time line of Chinese history and several maps. After a discussion of how archaeologists work and what they hope to accomplish, each of the next four chapters features a major find and explains its significance. The final chapters offer information about the lives of servants and artisans as well as the damage done by tomb raiders. Sidebars carry related information and appendixes include a glossary and short lists of books, articles, and Web sites. While the discussions of archaeology will hold readers' interest, the accompanying illustrations steal the show. The publisher's reputation for exceptionally fine photography is on display here. Adding value are dramatically lit photos, including some memorable shots of artefacts and mummies, useful maps, and clear diagrams. One other book in the series will be available this fall: Jill Rubalcaba's Ancient Egypt. Carolyn Phelan
