"Can you see anything?" one explorer asked the other as he peered into Tutankhamun's tomb. "Wonderful things," came the reply. In this thrilling guide, readers are brought face-to-face with the world's greatest treasures, large and small, discovered and still lost: from the underwater city of Atlantis to the Rosetta Stone, from the Mayan Crystal Skull of Doom to King Solomon's Mines. In short, concise, beautifully illustrated chapters, readers will learn about riches both real and legendary. Many of the discoveries here, like the Baghdad Battery, show that ancient cultures possessed knowledge we've only recently re-acquired. This account will appeal to anyone who's ever had what Mark Twain called the "raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure."
