商品簡介

作者簡介

Unforgettable Ancient Sites includes mysterious megalithic sites that appear to have been built using geometric principles far in advance of their time, pyramids that once ran with sacrificial blood, vast temple complexes, lost cities and stunning works of ancient architecture, these sites all have one thing in common - through them, we can connect with the grandeur of our own history. Fully illustrated with superb photography, it gives each site's history as well as some little known facts and insights into how little we actually know about some of these places.

Around the globe are places that have the power to transport us back through the ages; places where humankind has left magical monuments that speak to us across the centuries of people and civilizations that have long since passed.  Some are wrapped in mystery.  Why did early hunter-gatherer humans paint fantastic beasts across cave walls at Lascaux? Who raised Stonehenge or the Carnac Stones, and for what purpose?  If the Great Pyramid of Giza was built as a tomb why does its builder's name not appear anywhere on the massive building? others are less enigmatic but remind us of what wonders humans can uild.  Place like Angkor Wat, the Colosseum, and Machu Picchu stand witness to the architectural and engineering genius of ages past.  

Unforgettable Ancient Sites is a world tour of some of the most remarkable human achievements on the planet.  Visiting Europe, Asia, Africa, and of human civilization to the relatively recent, it takes the reader to the world's most breathtaking monuments.  Fully illustrated with superb photography, it gives each site's history as well as some little-known facts and insights into how little we actually know about some of these places. 

Martin J. Howard is a professional writer who specializes in historical subjects.  His previous books include works on the Wonders of the World-ancient and modern-as well as the histories of some of the great cities of the United States, and biographies of Christopher Columbus and Alexander the Great for Children.  He lives in France with his wife and three children.
