Through eight sensational stories of discovery, from the Rosetta Stone and the Terracotta Warriors to Machu Picchu, Michael Scott traces the evolution of archaeology itself from colonial expeditions to today’s cutting-edge digs. Trekking from the jungles of South America to the frozen highlands of Central Asia, investigating ancient human footprints and stunning shipwrecks, the star of BBC2’s Ancient Invisible Cities reveals just how much the discovery of our past is intertwined with the concerns of our present in a compelling new talk.
