How do scholars learn about the past? Traditionally, conferences and publications present the results of research--conclusions about the past reached after sifting through various pieces of evidence. But if you have ever wondered how history is "made," explore how we know what we know about the past through Unlocking the Secrets of Time.
Archaeologists, historians, museum curators, and others who interpret the past examine the ways by which the past reveals itself to us in the present and how the mystery of the past is solved through the clues that survive today. Discover how professionals seek, find, and interpret the buried record of the past in old newspapers, texts, public documents, diaries, and letters; in prints, paintings, and photographs; and in artifacts, implements and architecture.
