Title:New Light on the Most Ancient East
Childe, Gordon

Tags:archaeology, non-fiction

This book offers a detailed survey on major archeological discoveries in the Near & Middle East. This classic account focuses on the findings in three great centers of ancient civilization: Egypt, Sumer & the Indus valley.

Prof. Childe discusses the excavation of the three cities of Mohenjo-daro & Chanhu-daro on the Indus & Harappa on the Ravi, & what these sites have revealed about Indian civilization in the 3rd millennium BCE. He describes the findings at the numerous tells between Mesopotamia & the Indus basin, & in the three provinces of the Fertile Crescent; the succession of cultures in pre-dynastic Egypt & the rise of the Pharaohs; the findings at Ur & Kish & the development of an urban civilization in Mesopotamia. Throughout the text, the author sets forth the step-by-step gathering of precise archeological evidence, relating these findings both to the context of their particular culture & to the larger context of the origins of European history.—Goodreads.com.
