Re-creations: Visualizing Our Past
?The archaeologist and historian are both scientists and artists. Their first aim is to seek objective truth and to debunk anything false, but they seek, as does the artist, to illumine the truth with imagination.? Rt Hon. Lord Harlech, 1949 (President of the National Museum of Wales 1937-42)Many techniques have been used to provide a window into the past; this attractive book looks at the ways we illustrate our past through the eyes of artists, craftspeople, historians and scientists. With engaging text and images, Re-Creations presents the development of archaeological reconstructions, from medieval pictures of King Arthur to computer generated models.
