Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

An extraordinary collaboration over 15 years, the project represented by this book is associated with an initiative by UNESCO's World Heritage Centre to identify and preserve (and address threats to preservation) the natural and cultural wealth of the Altai Mountains region along Mongolia's borders with Russia and China. Affiliated with the U. of Oregon, Esther Jacobson-Tepfer (emeritus, art history) and James E. Meacham (geography), along with photographer Gary Tepfer, have together created a narrative describing the 12,000-year old history, visual documentation in photos of sites and artifacts, and the best maps describing human and physical geography that current technology can create. Their work is presented in an oversize volume (11x11"), with an accompanying website. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai examines the distribution of ancient surface archaeology within the mountainous landscape of northwestern Mongolia. For thousands of years, this region has been inhabited by hunters and pastoral nomads who erected great stone altars, burial mounds, standing stones and stone images in the valleys through which they moved; they left behind them huge concentrations of rock art in the high valleys-images that effectively recount their lives.
