Abstract:

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.
