Abstract

As a teenager my parents received through the Book-of-the-Month Club a volume that could easily have led me to want to become an archaeologist if I had not already made that decision. Gods, Graves. and Scholars by C. W. Cerarn (pseudonym of German journalist Kurt W. Marek) had been first published in Germany in 1949 and translated and published in the U.S. in 1951 (Ceram 1951). This book, still in print, was one of the few written in the first half of the century to bring the history of archaeology to a general audience.
