The History of Archaeology traces the history of this science from its inception in eighteenth century Pompeii to the present day. With detailed text and hundreds of full-color photographs, it describes the scientific advances made by key figures, such as C. J. Thomsen; renowned personalities of archaeology, such as Giovanni Belzoni; and important events in archaeological history, such as the development of Carbon 14 dating by scientists in the 1950s. Each of the book’s five sections describes the history of one of the basic themes in archaeology, including: The search for treasure trove
The search for the origins of humankind and civilization
The search for “scientific” proof of the truth of ancient writings and of holy scripture
The constant, continuing search for ancient pedigree for every modern nation and culture
The universal re-occurring question, “What were our ancestors really like?”
