For some 30 years the University of Pennsylvania Museum flourished under the directorship of Froelich Rainey, who revived it after WW II and made it a preeminent institution devoted to excavation and innovative technology applied to archaeology.

In this personal memoir, Dr. Rainey recounts the highlights of his archaeological career spanning more than 50 years of active field research in all parts of the world—the West Indies, the Arctic, the Near and Middle East, Europe, the New World, and the Far East.
