The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderful search back in time, from the ice-age to Titanic, across the globe, this book uncovers some of the greatest archaeological mysteries explaining how they were found and excavated. Fact boxes, reproductions of how some of the sites may have looked in the past and photographs of how some look today, all help to bring alive lost but not forgotten worlds.
Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Award for ‘the best book with facts’.
Archaeology Detectives by Simon Adams
How do we know what ancient Athens was like or how the Aztecs lived? This question is fully answered by Archaeology Detectives, which tells the story of how archaeologists in the past two hundred years have gradually deciphered some of the world's most fascinating ancient sites. It takes the reader on the journey from initial discovery of specific sites or monuments to contemporary understanding of the civilizations that built them. This book links archaeological techniques with stories of how pioneers deciphered real sites, describing the thrilling process of analysis, frustrations, breakthroughs, and luck.
