The world of archaeology informs and entertains millions. Now there is a book that will captivate and fascinate armchair archaeologists, amateurs on weekend digs, and professionals toiling at sites around the globe. Compiled by the editors of Archaeology, this is the first in a series of annual publications documenting the leading archaeological discoveries around the world. Year of Discovery will enthrall readers with new facts and stories about our ancient African ancestors, a surprising expose of museum fakes, how to make a modern mummy, the sad tale of a Persian princess, the Taliban's cultural terrorism, touching the tomb of Midas, the misery of slavery on a plantation ... in New York, the mysterious flight of the Anasazi and a dive to the wreck of RMS Titanic. Filled with timelines, maps, charts, photographs, and illustrations, Year of Discovery takes you into the past on a journey of adventure. Book jacket.
