Book News Annotation:

Romer (an archaeologist, formerly affiliated with the University of Chicago) traces the history of archaeology from its inception in eighteenth-century Pompeii to the present day. Each of the book's five sections describes the history of a basic theme in the discipline, including the search for treasure troves, the search for the origins of humankind and civilization, the search to verify ancient writings and scripture, the search for the origins of every modern nation and culture, and the quest to understand our ancestors. Photographs and engravings are prominently featured.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
