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.
