Archeological discoveries: Cities, Tombs, Treasures
by Ekaterina Stepanenko, ill. by Dana Marasinova
Is it possible to accidentally discover a trace of a civilization no one heard of while building a railroad? Or dig up a legendary city by getting directions from an ancient poet’s tales?
Can you become a finder of long-lost tombs if you keep believing and work hard enough? You can in this book! It has tales of dreamers and adventurers, treasure see- kers and meticulous scientists, and, of course, their outstanding discoveries – some accidental, some results of many years of labor: burial sites, treasures, ancient cities, and mysterious writings. You will learn about the birth and development of archaeo- logy, what mistakes it made, what difficulties it had to overcome, and how the smal- lest of discoveries can turn our understanding of ancient history upside down.
