The people who became known as the Anasazi began to farm the Four Corners Region as early as 1 A.D. For most of their history, they lived in small, scattered villages on the mesas and in the valleys. But in the middle of the 13th century, something happened. They began to cluster together and built high walls around their homes, or lived precariously on the cliff-sides. Then, a few decades later, they abandoned these homes, leaving behind most of their possessions, as if they intended to return. Instead, they disappeared from history. What happened? Did drought drive them away? Invading tribes? There is compelling evidence that the Anasazi might have had to turn to warfare and even cannibalism. Piecing together the story from both archaeologists and Native Americans, Josh Bernstein finally ends up, in his search for the truth, in the mysterious ruins of the Anasazi's greatest cultural center, Chaco Canyon, which for unknown reasons was abandoned around 1150 A.D

In 1991, a pair of vacationing German hikers stumbled onto one of the most remarkable finds in the history of archaeology: the perfectly preserved body of a 5,000-year old man. What made the discovery so important was more than just his state of physical preservation, but also the period of time from which he came--the very cusp of the age between stone and steel. Host and adventurer Josh Bernstein heads for the high Alps on the Austrian-Italian border to discover the latest secrets revealed by the clothes, weaponry, and body of Ötzi the Iceman. Josh faces down a deadly blizzard, helicopters out of near disaster, and comes face-to-face with a stone-cold, stone-age killer. Along the way, he discovers that the Iceman is rewriting our ideas about the life of our ancestors at the dawn of civilization--and he learns much about the character of Ötzi!

Giants of Easter Island( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Easter Island was discovered by Europeans, this tiny speck of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has baffled scientists. It's only eleven miles long by seven miles wide, and it's the most remote inhabited place on the planet. How did the ancients who peopled this place even find it? Carbon dating tells us that Polynesians settled this tiny paradise in the fifth century A.D. By the 14th century, their numbers had grown to almost twenty thousand -- but then something went wrong. When Dutch voyagers found the island in 1722, the population was decimated and the island deforested and almost desertified. Josh learns how the prehistoric Polynesians navigated and colonized the Pacific and how the giant, haunting stone heads of Easter Island may have contributed to their downfall. He learns that the statues all came from a single quarry, the islanders using Stone Age methods to create nearly a thousand of them before, for tragic reasons, they simply stopped, leaving many scattered and unfinished. Around the sixteenth century, many islanders began living underground in lava tube caves. How does this change relate to the ecological degradation and the abandonment of the statues? Josh discovers that place-names indicate the fall of the society into warfare and cannibalism, and that the bizarre Cult of the Birdman, based on worship of the sooty tern, arose to bring an end to the chaos

Willingboro by Josh Bernstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Located between Philadelphia and Trenton, Willingboro has a three-hundred-year history of forward thinking. Founded in 1688 by Thomas Olive, a Quaker who left England seeking religious freedom, Willingboro evolved from an agricultural community longing to rid itself of British rule to a suburb unique in the United States. Using many vintage photographs and historical documents, Willingboro chronicles the rich lives and experiences of its residents, including William Franklin, the last royal governor of New Jersey, and track star Carl Lewis. This volume explores Willingboro's beginnings as a quiet farming community, which was a planned Delaware River crossing site for Washington's army during the Revolutionary War. Close to two centuries later, a Long Island developer replaced the farms with eleven thousand affordable homes that became America's third Levittown. Willingboro is the finest example of post-World War II suburban planning, affirmed in 1960 by the Westinghouse Corporation's decision to use the town as the backdrop for its "picture of everyday American life" advertising campaign. Willingboro gained international attention for its groundbreaking design, campaign visits from John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, lakefront resort created through the construction of the Philadelphia subway system, and renowned jazz festival
