1 ALLEN, SUSAN HEUCK. Finding The Walls Of Troy: Frank Calvert And Heinrich Schliemann At Hisarlik.
University of California Press, Berkeley: 1999. 0520208684 / 9780520208681 s Softcover. Very good condition. 
The relentlessly self-promoting amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann took full credit for discovering Homer's Troy over one hundred years ago, and since then generations have thrilled to the tale of his ambitions and achievements. But Schliemann gained this status as an archaeological hero partly by deliberately eclipsing the man who had launched his career. Now, at long last, Susan Heuck Allen puts the record straight in this fascinating archaeological adventure that restores the British expatriate Frank Calvert to his rightful place in the story of the identification and excavation of Hisarlik, the site now thought to be Troy as described in the Iliad. Frank Calvert had lived in the Troad--in the northwest corner of Asia Minor--excavating there for fifteen years before Schliemann arrived and learning the local topography well. Includes Index.

14 BRUHNS, KAREN OLSEN. Ancient South America.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 1999. 0521277612 / 9780521277617 Cambridge World Archaeology Series. Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
To outsiders ancient South America is synonymous with the Incas. Originally a small unremarkable group, the Incas under their leader Pachacuti, conquered most of their known world within a single lifetime. But before the Incas there were some ten millennia of prehistory, centuries in which great civilizations rose, flourished and, inevitably, fell. Chauvin, with its fanged gods and hallucinogenic drugs; Huari, a massive militaristic state; the Manteno,who held the most valued substance of the Andes in their power; the Quimbaya,who developed the most beautiful gold work the world has ever seen - all were part of the unique history of the continent. Ancient South America provides an incisive view of this exotic continent and its remarkable past. The origins of agriculture, ceramics and metallurgy are covered clearly and non-dogmatically, as are developments in the tropical regions of the continent. The contributions of these cultures to modern civilizations are enormous yet still little appreciated. Includes an Index.
