ISBN 0374323356
Few of us have gotten to visit the great pyramids of Egypt, but we have seen and read many stories about the magnificence of ancient Egyptian pyramids. None of us has had the opportunity to explore any of the pyramids. In THE 5,000-YEAR-OLD PUZZLE by Claudia Logan you become part of a tomb expedition. You travel with young Will Hunt in search of a hidden tomb. If you find it, what will be in it? Will it contain treasures like those in the tomb found just a few years earlieróKing Tutís tomb? To get a first hand feel for what an archeological dig might be like, read THE 5,000-YEAR-OLD PUZZLE by Claudia Logan.
