Summary
"Ranging from the temples of the Incas to the cave paintings of Lascaux, from the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia to the prehistoric cultures of Siberia, The Penguin Archaeology Guide covers over three million years of human development across the world. This unique, meticulously researched work will be invaluable both for academics and for general enthusiasts." "With some 3,500 articles compiled by a team of international experts, The Penguin Archaeology Guide includes: entries on major sites in all parts of the globe, from the Paviland Cave in Wales to the Birrigai rockshelter in Australia; descriptions of early peoples, cultures and civilizations, including the Egyptians, Etruscans, Aztecs and Celts; information on a vast range of archaeological artifacts from pottery to papyrus; articles exploring the theory and practice of archaeology, including the dating of sites and objects; accounts of the achievements of key figures in the history of archaeology; and maps and photographs throughout."--BOOK JACKET
