Publisher's Summary

The work of archaeologists has commanded worldwide attention and captivated the human imagination since the earliest days of exploration, with groundbreaking discoveries such as the treasures of ancient Egypt, the lost kingdoms of the Maya, and the fabled city of Troy. Archaeology brings us face-to-face with our distant ancestors, with treasures of the past, and with life as it was lived in long-ago civilizations.

Despite the fascinating and often romantic appeal of archaeology, many of us have little idea of what the field actually involves. What, exactly, do archaeologists do? What takes place on an archaeological dig? And how does the reality of the work differ from what we see in Indiana Jones movies?

Archaeology: An Introduction to the World's Greatest Sites, taught by renowned archaeologist and National Geographic Explorer Eric H. Cline, answers these questions and more in rich and provocative detail. These 24 thrilling lectures, produced in partnership with National Geographic, introduces you to over 20 of the most significant and enthralling archaeological sites on the planet, providing both in-depth looks at the sites themselves and an insider's view of the history, science, and technology of archaeology. Prepare yourself for a vivid and detailed exploration of archaeology's most magnificent discoveries in the company of an expert archaeologist with decades of experience in the field.

I want to DIG!

I really enjoyed the lectures. I have always wanted to attend an archeological dig but life has a way of getting in the way. The lectures have awaken that again.
The lectures are well written with nice personal touches from professor Cline.

Fantastic!!

What an outstandingly amazing set of lectures! I thought they might be dry, but not at all. I was most enthralled to learn about Tel Megiddo, which had somehow escaped my attention until now.
The lectures were especially interesting as Professor Eric Cline leads internationally renowned archaeological digs himself, so there is real passion and knowledge when he speaks. I am planning to read his books now.
Highly recommended!
