10 editions published between 1918 and 1988 in English and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... The 19th century marked the real beginning of modern archaeology. Even so, those in the vanguard were more often romantic adventurers or heedless plunderers than trained scientists. Properly interpreting an unfolding series of discoveries has taken decades of exhausting, meticulous digging and sifting through the humble remains of houses, drains, and garbage pits ... Silent artifacts and ruined buildings can tell us an amazing amount. Fortified city gates and walls unearthed in the Holy Land enrich our knowledge of the days of King Solomon. Far up the Nile in the Sudan, clusters of pyramids and baffling stone structures hint at the grandeur of the mysteries of the Kingdom of Kush ... In its special, large format, enhanced by more than 250 color photographs and 17 specially commissioned paintings, 'Splendors of the Past' brings to life the fascinating world of our ancestors"--Front flap of cover

Discovering man's past in the Americas by George E Stuart( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 1973 in English and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discovering Man's· Past in the Americas chronicles human development in the Western Hemisphere from Ice Age wanderers to builders of mighty empires that astounded 16th-century Spanish conquistadors. The setting for this absorbing story reaches from Alaska to the tip of South America. With authors George and Gene Stuart and their four children you journey to sites where students patiently brush the dust of millenniums from the bones of mammoths at an ancient hunting camp; you stroll a deserted plaza in the moonlight, and hear echoes answer your call like voices from the past. You peer over the shoulders of archeologists as they glean information from vine-covered temples, dusty caves, burial mounds, and heaps of rubbish then turn to computers for help in filling in the details of a picture from the past. Dazzling works of art in gold, jade, mica, and stone tell of the abilities of ancient artists; the beauty of ritual objects and everyday goods reveals the patience and skill of the craftsmen who made them. Drawings, maps, and nearly 200 photographs take you to places as varied as the Grand Canyon and Aztec temples once reddened with the blood of human sacrifice -- Book jacket
