Rate this:
Bahn has produced a complete synthesis of the history of archaeology which will appeal to a wide, non-specialist, non-professional audience. Devoid of jargon and theoretical suppositions, he deals with the past, present and future of the discipline. Examples of events and discoveries are given, along with illustrations, from New World exploration and discovery of the 16th century, through the age of antiquarians and explorers, the science and romanticism of the 19th century, the search for human origins, and the new ideas, discoveries and techniques of the 20th and 21st centuries. A rich and detailed account written in Bahn's usual readable style.
