Archaeologists are engaged in an arduous but exciting ongoing effort to trace and reconstruct the origins of tool-making, language, farming, religious worship, literature, and all the other crucial bits and pieces of what we call human civilization.

Through the words of numerous noted historians, this volume traces and details the efforts of the earliest of these peoples, including the Sumerians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Jews, Greeks, Celts, and others.
