Explore the ancient world with BURIED TREASURES: Uncovering the Secrets of the Past (Abrams, $19.95). Photographer Stéphane Compoint traveled everywhere from the North Pole to Easter Island and from Ireland to Pakistan capturing images that reveal the past. Working with archaeologists and experts in the field, Compoint explains the way dinosaur fossils were reconstructed in Mongolia and how the eruption of a volcano preserved the entire city of Pompeii. A world map at the beginning highlights the breadth of sites Compoint visited, and an appendix gives biographies of the archaeologists that helped the photographer create this fascinating book.
