From the rediscovery Pompeii, to the connoisseurship of Greek vases; and from Howard Carter and Tutankhamun to Agatha Christie and the Middle Eastern tells at Ur and Nimrud excavated in the 20th century, to modern forensic techniques such as scanning and VR reconstruction, explore the develop from antiquarianism to academic archaeology.
