The details of the pieces that you see with your own eyes,and then dream of were they were discovered how and by whom and look at the book.Oh I wish I discovered them myself.The pictures are very detailed,and come in different sizes.It is a collector's book which does credit to the writer.Very very well done.the history is written the pictures of the graveyards,how the skeletons were discovered with these fantastic pieces of gold.Everything is detailed.
A must have book.
I use this story (and the ones of various people acting to save national treasures in Iraq and Egypt) to emphasize to my ancient history students that history is not just dates and pretty pictures.
