Summary

"Milestones in Archaeology: A Chronological Encyclopedia uses three essays on different historical periods to bring together over 500 years of archaeology's "greatest hits," some familiar, some deserving wider recognition for their impact on our understanding of history. As the work moves forward century by century, readers will experience the evolution of a science, from the simplest tools to the collecting of antiquarian dabblers to today's globalized enterprises combining old-fashioned "dirty hands" work with satellites, computers, x-rays, and other modern technologies."--BOOK JACKET.
