• Photographs of such monuments and artifacts as the pyramids at Giza, Serpent Mound, Nazca ground drawings, Tucson artifacts, Michigan Relics, and Easter Island Moai bring the topics to life
• A comprehensive bibliography and further reading suggestions at the end of each entry feed further investigation
