Year of Discovery : From King Tut's tomb to Indiana Jones, the world of archaeology has informed and entertained millions. Now there is a book that will captivate everyone from armchair archaeologists to amateurs on weekend digs, from eager college students to the professionals toiling at sites around the globe.
Compiled by the editors of Archaeology Magazine, this is the first in a series of annual publications documenting the leading archaeological discoveries around the world.
Archaeology is more than just old bones. It is an exciting science combining history; sociology, cultural studies, travel, and adventure. Every year, new and exciting discoveries reveal a wealth of information about our past.
From stunning new discoveries of Egyptian coffin and mummy art to the earliest hominid fossils to exciting new finds in Biblical archaeology; no one brings the ancient world alive like the editors of Archaeology Magazine.
Featuring timelines, maps and photographs from around the world, The Year of Discovery 2002 brings you the latest on the true story of Noah's Flood, what really happened to The Titanic, and a surprising expose on fake artifacts in the world's top museums. There's also a special feature on the making of a modern mummy.
