Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) That's "digging up" understood more or less literally, is it? Novels in which revelations about the past have some impact on the narrative "present" are, after all, not that terribly rare ...


message 2: by Valerie (new)

Valerie Might want to add Andre Norton's Beast Master. Several of Norton's novels are about archaeological expeditions, but one of the main characters in Beast Master is an archaeologist.

Lobstergirl The Source

"In his signature style of grand storytelling, James Michener sweeps us back through time to the Holy Land, thousands of years ago. By exploring the lives and discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, Michener vividly re-creates life in and around an ancient city during critical periods of its existence, and traces the profound history of the Jews, including that of the early Hebrews and their persecution, the impact of Christianity on the Jewish world, the Crusades, and the Spanish Inquisition."
