Synopsis

The Impact of Technology in History and Archaeology by Alex Woolf

How have technology and science helped historians and archaeologists through the years? How does today's technology help us understand the past? What role does technology hold for the future of history studies? From the invention of metal detectors through to today's computer modelling of long-dead people, our knowledge of the past has always been improving thanks to technology. This book looks at historical, current and future techniques for helping us discover traces of the past from artifacts to human remains. We look at how dating these things has become more accurate and also how the internet is giving us more access to historical records than ever before.
