Description and Table of Contents


This introduction to the archaeology of the New World deals with the pre-Columbian cultures of North and South America and Mesoamerica. A survey of each area takes into account the work of pioneering explorers and archaeologists, and examines the pre-Columbian finds they discovered. The book is introduced by Norman Hammond, who describes recent finds and the progress of research since first publication of the text (as "The New World" in 1975).
