Relic Hunters : Archaeology and the Public in 19th Century America, Hardback Book


The first waves of settlers to enter the American heartland came across the remains of the people who had lived there before.

Relic Hunters presents some of these stories-how local people responded to the ruins in their midst, collected relics, and explained them to each other.
