       In Uncovering the Past, William H. Stiebing, Jr. offers an absorbing nontechnical history of archaeology, tracing the study of ancient material culture from its beginnings in the Renaissance through its development into the sophisticated modern discipline we know today. Stiebing has organized this concise history into four stages of archaeological development. The first two phases (1450-1860 and 1860-1925), known as the 'Heroic Age,' focus on the exploits of colorful, dynamic excavators who have made their mark on history and our imaginations. We read accounts of Giovanni Belzoni and the removal of the seven-ton colossus of Ramesses II, and Heinrich Schliemann's quest to prove the authenticity of Homer's Illiad y searching ancient Troy along the Turkish coast. The second two phases (1925-1960 and 1960-present), marked the era of 'Modern Archaeology,' a period which saw greater use of scientific instruments and procedures to locate, date, and interpret remains, such as metal detectors, statistics, carbon-14 dating, and computer visualization techniques. With over eighty photographs, illustrations, and maps, this vivid history is an outstanding introduction to the intriguing field of archeology, chronicling the development of this former pastime of dilettantes into a rigorous science.
