What do the archaeologists do? Are they digging holes in the ground all the time? Are they looking at ancient bones? Do they stick broken dishes together or are they looking for treasures?

First of all, the archaeologist tries to find out what people were like in the past and penetrate their secrets. He’s like a detective at the crime scene. Only the traces he exams were left hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of years ago!

In this book, you will find out if Herod was an evil king, if Tutankhamun’s curse killed someone, if Atlantis existed, why ancient Wikipedia was in Nineveh, what the terracotta army was, and how were the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered. You will also understand why old pottery pieces are more valuable to scientists than gold, learn how to find a mummy on a mountain hike, and discover what it takes to become an archaeologist.
