The other articles in the issue take you to destinations across the globe from an ancient hospital at the famous site of Angkor Thom in Cambodia, to the birthplace of the powerful god Zeus high atop a mountain in the region of Greece called Arcadia. Read about how Ice Age hunters braved the harsh landscape to hunt caribou, and follow as we travel across Albania, tracing its history from the ancient world to the modern day. And don’t miss the latest archaeological news, from the discovery of a king’s palace in Rwanda, to the story of sunken bronze statues at the bottom of the Adriatic Sea.
