Dora | 1 comments I'm just starting to structure my to-read list to fill in some educational gaps. Most of what I've read about archeology has been in mysteries (I've read almost all of Elizabeth Peters's Amelia Peabody books as well as some more contemporary authors). I've spent some time in Mexico and have visited various ruins and would love to understand more about various archeological finds there and in Central and South America.

I'd love to get some recommendations for books, preferably oriented toward a non-academic who just wants to have a better understanding of archeology.

I highly recommend "The White Rock" by Hugh Thomson.

Darren Davies Hiya, Just joined today.

Degree in classical studies so love those periods in history; though my main interests now lie in pre Roman Britain and the post Roman dark ages. Give me a mound to climb over or a ditch to root around in and I am happy as larry.

Any reccomendations for good reads on these subjects greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Darren
