Reviews - What do customers think about Studies in Ancient Technology: Ancient Geology - Ancient Mining and Quarrying - Ancient Mining Techniques (Studies in Ancient Technology)?

A wonderful resource  Nov 23, 2002
This book is part of a series of nine books that look at various aspects of ancient technology. The book I acquired was from the 1966 edition, and may be different from other editions. This one has three hefty chapters: Ancient Geology; Ancient Mining and Quarrying; and Ancient Mining Techniques. Everything is covered in this book, broken down by the ancient civilization, even covering such things as the legal status of the miner.

This book is an excellent resource on the topic of what the ancients knew about geology and extracting. This book contained the answers to every question that I had, and even to question I never thought to ask. It tries to cover every aspect of its topics, and it succeeds admirably. It is rather dry and academic in tone, but it is a wonderful resource, one that I highly recommend.
