Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0201406985, Hardcover)

Digging up the past creates a number of controversies. Is archaeology a form of desecration? Are archaeological sites resources that must be protected and conserved? How do the people engaged in archaeology deal with these controversies? When the Land Was Young is an expedition into current archaeology issues. Sharman Apt Russell traveled the United States visiting sites and talking to archaeologists, and her reports make for engaging and intelligent writing about the past and how we view it. She explores the conflicts between science and respect for the dead with keen insight; her observations are eloquent and thought provoking.
