A SHORT HISTORY OF ARCHAEOLOGY

by Glyn Daniel

with 146 illustrations - 10 in colour

Thames and Hudson 1981

h/c with d/j - approx 25cm x 16.5cm - no inscriptions

from front-flap:
No adventure story is more filled with astonishing incident and vehement contention than the story of man's quest to discover his past. And no writer is better equipped to relate it than Glyn Daniel, Professor of Archaeology at Cambridge, distinguished author and well-known television personality.
Archaeology proper is generally thought to have begun with the first excavations at Herculaneum and Pompeii in the mid-eighteenth century. But Professor Daniel opens his account long before that with the ancient Babylonians' search for their own ancestors two-and-a-half thousand years ago...
This book has the added distinction of being the hundredth volume in the celebrated Ancient Peoples and Places series, edited since its inception in 1956 by Glyn Daniel himself.
