I highly enjoyed this book. I have gone through three paperbacks of it and finally broke down and bought my hard copy. I've reread this great book numerous times, and I swear it gets better with every rereading. NOTE: A great companion to this volume is Ceram's "The First American," which covers the story of NORTH AMERICAN archeaology and is every bit as exciting to read as is "God's, Graves, and Scholars." (For instance, did you know that North America also has mummies!)

I first stumbled across this book in my parents' bookcase in the '50s. Now I'm in MY 50s and I still remember the thrill I felt reading about Schliemann's discovery of Troy, the translation of the Rosetta Stone...
This book presents fascinating information in an interesting, but never sensationalized, way that grabbed this pre-teen and hasn't let go yet. I reread it every few years and always find new goodies. And because of it, a trip to Troy has been on my dream list for the past 35 years. Someday I will see what I've been reading about so avidly all these years... Homer came alive for me in high school because of what I had learned from Ceram.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone with any interest at all in the ancient world - you'll be hooked, even as I was!

At one time this was considered a "must read" book for students of archeology (I speak of the 1951 edition). Today the information is very dated and in some cases it is just plain wrong. Still, as a general overview it is still well worth reading for anyone who wants a quick survey of archeology as it was taught in the middle years of this century.

A very interesting book regarding past finds. After reading the book I discovered why it has been reprinted so many times and why it is still read today. The book has just enough information in each chapter but not so detailed that it takes away from the story. It was my first book on the subject.

Combining storytelling with history, Ceram provides a smooth and easy read to understand the history of Archaeology. Although now classified by archaeologists as Culture History, God's, Graves, and Scholars is a must read for anyone interested in archaeology and/or history

This book makes archaeology great fun as it recounts the Indiana Jones-like glory days of heroic men of science, including Heinrich Schliemann, Howard Carter, and John Lloyd Stephens

I read this more than half a year ago, but I'll mention the one thing that's stuck with me the most: that the first Western artist attempting to sketch Mayan art was bewildered as to how to go about it, so alien was the viewpoint. I find that fascinating and revelatory, as with so many other things in this book.--J.Ruch

Ein Klassiker, der heute noch lesbar jedoch nicht immer sehr spannend ist. Freue mich trotzdem, ihn in meiner Bibliothek zu haben und dabei noch mein Englisch zu pflegen

This is a fascinating, fascinating account of ancient cultures and the people who unearthed and interpreted them centuries later. Highly readable and amusing.

I found that I could not finish this pompous book. It makes heroes of plain (and even foolish) men. Its elaborate wording speaks too much of the scholars, too little of the graves, and nothing at all of the gods. Knowledge seekers beware.
