ROBERTSHAW, PETER (EDITOR)
A History of African Archaeology
(London: James Currey / Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann, 1990) 0852550650. . 231 x 155 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. vi + 378, incl. index; illustrations; maps. A little sunned on spine; earlier owner's bookplate inside upper cover; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "This is the first history of the development of the subject which is the major source of information on Africa's past. Archaeologists have excavated in the continent for 200 years. The pace of this research has quickened over the last half-century. In this book some of the noted specialists pursue a regional approach and some examine particular periods of the continent's prehistory. Others chart the changing interrelationships between African archaeology and other disciplines. Particular features are the contributions by J.D. Clark, Thurstan Shaw and Peter Shinnie, archaeologists who have been in the forefront of the subject for almost fifty years.".

TREVELYAN, RALEIGH
The Shadow of Vesuvius. Pompeii Ad 79
(London: Michael Joseph, 1976) 0718115570. . 4to; original blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pictorial endpapers; pp. 128; profusely illustrated, in colour and monochrome. Short tear to top edge of dustwrapper's lower panel; a little light spotting; gift inscription to front endpaper. Very good condition. "The turn of fate which revealed the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum began in 1710 when a peasant, digging a well, struck marble from the theatre of Herculaneum. The discoveries in the two centuries that followed produced a revolution in artistic taste, affecting furniture, decoration and art in the whole civilized world. Raleigh Trevelyan's vivid narrative gives a striking personal impression of this ghostly city. He gives, too, an entertaining history of the slow unfinished striptease of time which gradually, tantalizingly, is revealing one of the greatest storehouses of treasures the world has seen, the source of much of our knowledge of daily life in the Roman world. The book is enriched by many magnificent colour plates - a mixture of nineteenth century paintings and prints, and present-day photographs of Pompeii.".

Since there was no standard fort design this book begins by describing an imaginary fort, and then traces the development of fort-building techniques and methods of construction. The many different designs that were employed for each type of building within the forts are illustrated with plans, diagrams and photographs.".

Dustwrapper sunned on spine panel, with faint tape marks and small tape repair to reverse. Very good condition. "Sir Leonard Woolley was a great and famous archaeologist, and he was also one of those rare scholars capable of mastering a complex science yet able to convey the excitement and absorbing interest of his subject to the ordinary reader. Digging Up The Past is Sir Leonard Woolley's classic work, in which he explains what archaeology is all about and how archaeological expeditions should be organised. It is emphasised that archaeology is no mere treasure hunt, however thrilling that aspect of it may be, but an exact science which attempts to discover the pre-history of humanity.".
