Fetch your flashlight and grab a shovel; it’s time to dig up history! Unearthing the Past takes readers to the major archaeological sites of different places, times, and civilizations in history, revealing the remarkable stories behind the fascinating expeditions, the discoveries, and the people who uncovered them. Through these amazing excavations, Unearthing the Past pieces together the incredible development of humankind throughout the ages. Filled with more than a hundred full-color photographs and artwork; including maps, site plans, diagrams of excavations, timelines, and sidebar discussions, each chapter reveals a vast array of breathtaking finds from the great Giza Pyramids in Egypt to the volcanic mummified ruins of Pompeii, Italy. Most of the treasures and sites featured were only discovered after years of committed searching and the painstaking efforts of archaeologists, while some were chance finds. “Unearthing the Past” relates the unique dramas of each excavation and the importance of each site to our understanding of history. In the chapter “In Cities and Dwelling Places,” for example, the story of Dolni Vestonice unfolds. Located in the Czech Republic, this is a prehistoric site where a kiln and pottery figures, and therefore humans’ use of fire, have been dated at over 27,000 years old. This discovery and all of the others brought to light in “Unearthing the Past”, helps to unravel the complex characteristics of our human development. CONDITION: NEW.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: “Unearthing the Past” takes the reader to the major archaeological sites of different places, times, and civilizations in history, revealing the remarkable stories behind the discoveries made, the fascinating expeditions, and the people who discovered them. Arranged thematically, the chapters reveal a vast array of incredible finds, with three to four spreads devoted to each archaeological site. Unearthing the Past relates the unique dramas of each excavation, details the items found and their significance, where they are now exhibited, and the importance of that site to our understanding of history. “Unearthing the Past: The Great Archaeological Discoveries that have Changed History”, was co-authored by Dr. Douglas Palmer, Dr. Paul G.

READER REVIEW: REVIEW: What a wonderful survey of man’s past and the most significant archaeological sites uncovered. Wonderfully illustrated, this is an immensely satisfying and entertaining read. High quality publication as well, glossy pages, well bound. A real bargain in today’s world of cheaply produced books. This is a 10! I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
