KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a book on archaeology, but it is handled from a popular angle and the subject is brought to life. He takes the jigsaw puzzle of human progress, he divides his material into food, architecture, clothes, religion, marriage, culture, science, etc., and then through the medium of the discoveries of the archaeologists, he fits the pieces together. The result is a human story, lightened by the modern angle of archaeological research, and answering many general questions. Written with delightful flashes of humor and a spirit of drama and human sympathy.
