Publisher Description

Popular fiction is filled with images of archaeologists as daring adventurers who constantly risk life and limb in the pursuit of fabulous antiquities of immense historical and monetary value. There are evil villains, great romances, and unknown perils lurking around every corner.

That’s the view many people have of archaeology. But what is the truth behind the myth? And why have the myths persisted for so long?

In this book you’ll explore the fiction surrounding archaeology, why we as people love and perpetuate that fiction, and what the truth behind the fiction really is.

Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. Come along and explore both.
