In about three centuries archaeology has evolved from treasure-hunting and the quaint speculation of antiquarians into a meticulous discipline, absorbing techniques from other sciences in order to extract the maximum of information from the slightest of evidence. Dr. Glyn Daniel has long been regarded as the foremost British historian of archaeology. In this anthology of key writings he illustrates vividly the dramatic development of the subject. The early blunderings are illustrated by the extraordinary exploits of Belzoni, the romance of the heyday of discovery by Schliemann, Evans and Howard Carter. Later chapters document the equally exciting development of systematic excavation and of techniques for precise dating that would once have seemed impossible.
