Coming November 11, 2014, from HarperCollins
What does it take to dedicate yourself to the hidden past, and why does it matter? Iíve been following archaeology professionals around the world for a new book titled Lives in Ruins: Archaeologists and Seductive Lure of Human Rubble, and here are a few things I've noticed:
*Archaeologists have a high tolerance for grossness. They're used to working in graves and garbage pits.
*Beer is the international beverage of archaeology.
*Archaeologists love Indiana Jones. They talk about him as if he's their daredevil older brother.
*The world is mutating faster than archaeologists can keep up.
