Reviews

[Review for previous edition] Lavishly illustrated in full-color throughout, the volume belies its modest price and could be mistaken for a coffee-table book were the informational aspects of the work less impressive.... As an introduction to the archaeological discoveries of the last few centuries, there is little here to be faulted, particularly at this price. Recommended for high school, public, and college libraries.--Amanda Sprochi, University of Missouri Library "Library Journal " [Review for previous edition] More than 550 archivval and color images, 20 regional maps, and 150 locator maps, as well as time lines make the past ages live.... The book is very readable as well as a useful reference tool. It can be browsed or studied, and it would engge the informal student as well as the serious reader.... Rich, colorful photographs and artwork are found on every page.... Strongly recommended for public libraries needing just one basic resource.-- (05/15/2008) [Review for previous edition] The color photographs are well chosen and of high quality. The inclusion of maps for each individual site and timelines for the most complex civilizations add to the usefulness the work. Sidebars are both interesting and relevant. Langauage and presentation will make this volume useful to libraries serving middle school studenets and abov. Because of the general nature of the work, it will be most useful for middlde and secondary schools as well as public libraries.-- (01/01/2008) [Review for previous edition] A must read for anyone interested in archaeology... Historical and modern photos, as well as detailed maps, make perfect ccomplements to the text.-- (03/01/2008) [Review for previous edition] This profusely illustrated guide presents the history of archaeology, defines its subfields, and considers some of its challenges.--Science News (09/22/2007)
