Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

How can new scientific techniques alter the way we look at ancient mysteries? More and more, highly specialized scientists are taking over the investigation of the past. Using satellites and aircraft, they are screening entire regions throughout the world in an attempt to find hidden traces of early societies. What’s more, their discoveries—often in complete contrast to archaeology’s established schools of thought—are changing our view of prehistoric civilizations. Here, the illustrious geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger takes the reader into the field to look at excavations around the world, explaining current thinking in archaeological research and exploring the sophisticated techniques that have only recently become available. The result is a refreshingly novel view of the past and a fascinating glimpse of the future of archeological science.

About the Author

Eberhard Zangger, born in 1958, is an expert in the reconstruction of archaeological landscapes. He earned a PhD in geology from Stanford University, and was Senior Research Associate in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Cambridge. In 1991, he founded his own consulting bureau Geoarchaeology International in Zurich. Archaeological institutes across the world have invited Zangger to investigate the landscapes around many important archaeological sites. He has written and co-authored about seventy scientific articles which have appeared in American Journal of Archaeology, Journal of Field Archaeology, Oxford Journal of Archaeology and Hesperia. The Future of the Past is his fourth book.
