Synopsis

Archaeologists help us to comprehend the vast history of humankind by sifting through the remains of earlier cultures and civilizations. "Archaeologica" delves into this thrilling realm, taking readers on a unique journey into antiquity.Modern archaeology is more than just excavation - it involves satellite imagery, DNA analysis, three-dimensional computer simulations, and more. However, age-old issues such as forgeries, tomb robbers, and the ownership of finds still plague archaeologists.The first part of the book introduces the history and science of archaeology, from the first chroniclers of earlier peoples to the techniques used and the problems faced today. The second section details the compelling history of the world's most important sites. From early human footprints at Laetoli in Tanzania dating to 3.6 million years ago to the 20,000-year-old Aboriginal footprints at Lake Mungo in Australia, these are the places where human history has left its mark.A wealth of fascinating features on subjects as diverse as mummies and mummification, bog bodies, the development of writing, Aztec human sacrifice, and rock art also enhance readers' understanding of humanity's long archaeological record.

"Archaeologica" is illustrated with more than 550 images - including historical photos, scenic site shots, and pictures of key artefacts - as well as over 20 detailed regional maps and 150 locator maps. These images and maps bring the past to life, ensuring that the book will become a favourite guide for history buffs and amateur archaeologists alike.Written by an international team of archaeologists, historians, and cultural anthropologists, it incorporates the latest findings from around the world; and, features over 150 sites from more than 50 countries. Sites cover a wide range of human history, from the appearance of the first humans in Africa over 3 million years ago to fortified Maori settlements in New Zealand dated to the fifteenth century CE. It includes a detailed introduction to the history and techniques of archaeology, plus a comprehensive glossary and index. It is illustrated with over 550 images, including artifacts, paintings, sculptures, etchings, reliefs, and site photographs.
