Críticas ""Ideal for time-travellers of all ages.""-David Miles, Minerva ""In a book about the study of archaeology, it would be easy to fill the pages with tales of digging derring-do. . . Brian Fagan, the noted prehistorian, does not disappoint in that regard, but neither does he provide a narrative of just one remarkable discovery after another. . . He charts the story from 19th-century treasure-hunting among the ruins of ancient Eygpt, up to today's professional, multi-disciplinary, scientific approaches."" -David Musgrove, BBC History ""Brian Fagan provides an entertaining account of the development of archaeology across the world. . . Fagan's recollections. . . help bring the history to life.""-Current World Archaeology ""Learned and lively.""-Wall Street Journal ""Fantastic gifts for the young and curious.""-The Bookseller ""It's an impressive piece of editing as well as a good read"" - Francis Pryor, CountryFile Magazine ""The perfect introduction to archaeology and its rich and exciting history.

The word may bring to mind images of golden pharaohs and lost civilizations, or Neanderthal skulls and Ice Age cave art. Archaeology is all of these, but also far more: the only science to encompass the entire span of human history-more than three million years! This Little History tells the riveting stories of some of the great archaeologists and their amazing discoveries around the globe: ancient Egyptian tombs, Mayan ruins, the first colonial settlements at Jamestown, mysterious Stonehenge, the incredibly preserved Pompeii, and many, many more. In forty brief, exciting chapters, the book recounts archaeology's development from its eighteenth-century origins to its twenty-first-century technological advances, including remote sensing capabilities and satellite imagery techniques that have revolutionized the field. Shining light on the most intriguing events in the history of the field, this absolutely up-to-date book illuminates archaeology's controversies, discoveries, heroes and scoundrels, global sites, and newest methods for curious readers of every age.
