Details

Blending high adventure with history, this chronicle of 100 astonishing discoveries from the Dead Sea Scrolls to the fabulous "Lost City of the Monkey God" tells incredible stories of how explorers and archaeologists have uncovered the clues that illuminate our past.

Archaeology is the key that unlocks our deepest history. Ruined cities, golden treasures, cryptic inscriptions, and ornate tombs have been found across the world, and yet these artifacts of ages past often raised more questions than answers. But with the emergence of archaeology as a scientific discipline in the 19th century, everything changed.

Illustrated with dazzling photographs, this enlightening narrative tells the story of human civilization through 100 key expeditions, spanning six continents and more than three million years of history. Each account relies on firsthand reports from explorers, antiquarians, and scientists as they crack secret codes, evade looters and political suppression, fall in love, commit a litany of blunders, and uncover ancient curses.

Pivotal discoveries include:

  • King Tut's tomb of treasure
  • Terracotta warriors escorting China's first emperor into the afterlife
  • The glorious Anglo-Saxon treasure of Sutton-HooGraves of the Scythians, the real Amazon warrior women
  • New findings on the grim fate of the colonists of Jamestown

With a foreword from bestselling author Douglas Preston, Lost Cities, Ancient Tombs is an expertly curated and breath-taking panorama of the human journey.

"Love these"

These chimes are beautiful to see and to hear. I saw somewhere that the chimes need to be oiled to keep them beautiful.

"Not just a desk decoration …"

It s the perfect 10 minute escape route. It s perfectly tuned and the melody is perfect for meditation or playing in my serenity garden. I love this piece, it s well made, shipped and delivered as expected, and I recommend this artist.
