Read full description of the books:
The length of this book seemed intimidating at first, but it proved to be quite fascinating. After the first chapter it was difficult to put the book down. The text is flowing, etched with many facts and examples and generally well written. The author really seems to love archaelogy and manages to spark a good bit of enthusiasm in the reader as well. It focuses on archaeological methods, the conquest of South-Western U.S. and pueblos, mounds and the most relevant earliest archaelogical find. Methods such as statigraphy, radiocarbondating and dendocronology are explained in much detail (in the process paying an overwhelming tribute to Thomas Jefferson). The search for the seven (golden) cities of Cibola is retold in great length. So much so that it would seemingly make for a good movie. The story of Ishi, the last living stone age man in the U.S. is also told in some length. All in all it is a "popular history" type of book. The information is surely outdated but it still makes for a good read.

Read information about the authorC.W. Ceram was the pseudonym of German journalist and author Kurt Wilhelm Marek, known for his popular works about archaeology. He chose to write under a pseudonym to distance himself from his earlier work as a propagandist for the Third Reich.
Ceram was born in Berlin. During World War II, he was a member of the Propagandatruppe. His works from that period include Wir hielten Narvik, 1941, and Rote Spiegel - überall am Feind. Von den Kanonieren des Reichsmarschalls, 1943.
In 1949, Ceram wrote his most famous book, Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte — published in English as Gods, Graves and Scholars: The Story of Archaeology — an account of the historical development of archaeology. Published in 28 languages, Ceram's book eventually received a printing of over 5 million copies, and is still in print today.
Other books by the author include The Secret of the Hittites, March of Archaeology and The First American, a book on ancient North American history.
Kurt Marek was responsible for the publication of A Woman in Berlin, presented as the non-fiction account of a German woman raped by Red Army troops.
He died at Hamburg in 1972.
Ceram Prize in archaeology is named after him.
