Great 'lost kingdom' book that covers the rediscoveries of Petra, Nineveh, Hattusha, Copan, Chaco Canyon, Angkor, Troy, Zimbabwe, Knossos, Gournia, Machu Picchu, Ur and Ubar. The entries are fairly concise -- I read the entire book in less than a day -- but maintain an interesting tone throughout. The only downside is that it could have done with more photos.
