    Review quote
    "Accounts of the major achievements of the great archaeologists have spawned scores of best-selling books. The result [of Philipp Vandenberg's book] is engrossing. - Houston Post...a history filled with chicanery, treachery, deceit, cupidity, violence and even beauty, love and compassion. Philipp Vandenberg's Oracles may be safely consulted for hours of delightful and startling reading. - San Diego Magazine"
