Bonampak, Harappa, Machu Picchu, these and other sites were truly long lost to the modern world. Then, using scientific tools, archaeologists revised and revitalized the stories of these "lost" civilizations. Through colorful images and fascinating facts presented in engaging text and informative sidebars, students will learn how scientists rediscovered and scientifically dated murals, sculptures, and artifacts covered with grime or buried under ashes and stones. Chapter notes and a Further Reading section with current books and websites provide additional resources for deeper exploration.
