Der Weltbestseller "Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte" (Gesamtauflage: über 5 Millionen Exemplare) gilt als Wegbereiter des modernen Sachbuchs in Deutschland. C. W. Ceram erzählt darin die Geschichte der Archäologie als packenden, hochinformativen Tatsachenroman. Von Europa über den Vorderen Orient bis in die Neue Welt folgt er den Spuren der großen Forscher und Abenteurer. Der Leser scheint hautnah dabei zu sein, wenn Schliemann Troja entdeckt, Carter die legendäre Grabkammer des Tutanchamun öffnet, Koldewey Babylon freilegt, Thompson nach dem Schmuck der Maya taucht oder Champollion die Hieroglyphen entschlüsselt - und untergegangene Welten ihre Geheimnisse preisgeben. Cerams Klassiker ist ein bis heute unerreichtes Meisterwerk: die brillante Einführung in Methoden und Ergebnisse einer Wissenschaft. Für die Neuausgabe hat der bekannte Archäologe Michael Siebler das Buch durchgehend, aber behutsam aktualisiert. Die Bebilderung wurde vollkommen neu gestaltet und durch zahlreiche Zeichnungen von Hannelore Marek ergänzt

For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman, alone in the city, kept a daily record of her and her neighbours' experiences, determined to describe the common lot of millions. Purged of all self-pity but with laser-sharp observation and bracing humour, the anonymous author conjures up a ravaged apartment building and its little group of residents stuggling to get by in the rubble without food, heat or water. She depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity as well as their craveness, corrupted first by hunger and then by the Russians
