Hillary Huber engagingly narrates this fascinating glimpse into the life of the modern-day archaeologist. Far from the romantic occupation often imagined, archaeology involves unexpected pursuits and little income. With warmth and humor, Huber introduces an intriguing collection of specialists and provides just a hint of characterization, allowing the listener to envision each archaeologist’s unique obsession. Huber truly shines in narrating the voice of author Marilyn Johnson as she journeys to world-renowned archaeological sites (such as the stunning vista of Machu Picchu) and less glamorous field-training locales (which involve stinky buried pigs). Huber’s classy narration gives credence to Johnson’s assertion that archaeology is vastly more valuable than digging up bones and pottery. It’s a science that allows us to better understand our own humanity. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
