Lindsay Fulcher 
 The power of Pergamon
Ravishing ancient treasures in a new exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York reveal that the Hellenic kingdoms reached a cultural and artistic pinnacle in the city of Pergamon. Dominic Green
 Queen of the desert
Intrepid traveller, archaeologist, writer and political adviser in the midst of decisive Middle Eastern events, Gertrude Bell lived an extraordinary life that has inspired a new biography and, now, a film. Lisa Cooper
 Leading a life of luxury 
With evidence of a well-stocked wine cellar and colourful frescoes, the palace at Tel Kabri in Israel shows trade links between the Aegean and the Levant stretched back to the time of the Minoans.
Dominic Green
 Underground Rome
Ancient houses, temples and churches hidden for centuries beneath the streets of the Eternal City are seeing the light of day – and some of them can be visited. Dalu Jones
 Remembrance of things past
Although the antiquarian and collector Sir John Soane had a penchant for antiquities, he also had his eyes firmly fixed on the future – as 
an exhibition on the architecture of legacy shows. Lucia Marchini 
 A must for Late 
Bronze Age fans
David Gibson, Archaeological Manager of Cambridge Archaeological Unit, talks about his exciting discoveries – which have been compared to those at Pompeii – at Must Farm. Diana Bentley

The glorious Palaeolithic paintings, drawings and sculpture in the caves and rock shelters of the Dordogne and the Lot in France are nothing short of an artistic revelation.
