The Times Atlas of Archaeology

Atlas - 1988

Although maps are included in this survey of archaeologically derived information, in many cases they are secondary to photographs of artifacts, drawings and diagrams, and reconstructed aerial views of sites. The scope of coverage--worldwide from human origins to the beginning of the industrial age--allows only a sampling of the available information. Such broad topics as early farming in South Asia, standing stones, and iron-age Africa are presented in two-page spreads. The visual magnificence is up to the previous standards of the Hammond/London Times group. More useful as a general overview of archaeology than as a reference for detailed information. No bibliography. 10 3/4 x14 1/2 ". Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
