Media: Trade paperback

The Archaeologist as Detective.
The excavation of Herculaneum, the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen, the rediscovery of Babylon, the undersea dive into the Sacred Well of the Mayans: the imagination of every armchair archaeologist is fired by such events.
This beautifully chosen anthology has been skilfully edited by Robert Silverberg. The first-hand accounts of detection and discovery by some of the world's most famous archaeologists read as excitingly and suspensefully as a thriller.
