BELOW THE SURFACE

A particularly appropriate collection for the International Geophysical Year, this anthology of archeological writing deals with discoveries made both beneath the earth and water. Taken from the writings of the men who participated in important archeological discoveries, or from their biographers, each selection bears the unique stamp of its author, but there is consistent excitement throughout the book. Digging among King Solomon's mines, the search for Troy, the discovery of Roman and Viking ships, the uncovering of Egyptian jewels, first steps in the development of cultivated pearls, these are only a few of the varied operations described in this knowledgeable and adventurous account of exploration into time.
