Archaeology. Mummies, Gold and Old Broken Pots
What do archaeologists do? Do they dig holes all day long? Look at ancient bones? Glue broken crockery back together? Or maybe they look for treasures?
First of all, an archaeologist tries to establish what people were like in the past and to uncover their secrets. An archaeologist is like a detective at a crime scene, except the traces they’re looking at were left hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands years ago!
This book will tell you whether Herod was a bad king, whether Tutankhamun’s curse killed anybody, whether Atlantis really existed and why ancient Wikipedia was located in Nineveh. You’ll also learn what the Terracotta Army was used for and how the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. You’’ll understand why researchers find old shells more precious than gold, find out how to encounter a mummy on a mountain hike and discover what you need to do in order to become an archaeologist (and especially: what not to do!).
