Riassunto: Defines archaeology, examines how archaeologists work, surveys excavation methods, and visits archaeology sites--from Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania to the Garbage Project in America.
Recensione: A comprehensive reference book geared toward curious young people with an interest in archaeology or anthropology, Paleolithic specialist Norah Moloney's Young Oxford Book of Archaeology is packed with great photographs and illustrations. The book introduces human evolutionary concepts as background for a chronological sequence of significant archaeological discoveries. Well-written chapters cover introductory subjects such as "What Is Archaeology," "When Did It Happen," "Saving Our Heritage," "Underwater Archaeology," and "Ethnoarchaeology." More specific treatments of the advent of agriculture and the ancient civilizations of India, Egypt, Greece, and Mexico show how we get clues about the daily lives of our ancestors. Excellent photographs bring the subject matter to life, from the mammoth-bone houses of ancient Ukraine to the gardens of Xochimilco in southern Mexico City. Thorough and intricate, this book will help an inquisitive 9- to 15-year-old explore the fascinating world of archaeology. --Therese Littleton
