Imagine a vault so cavernous that it could contain all the world's greatest treasures and relics, from mummified remains of ancient monarchs to glistening swords brandished by legendary warriors. Who would be in charge of such a vault and how would he have come into possession of such a unique collection? Follow Professor Brownstone and the epic journeys of his ancestor as we trace the origins of the very first piece in his collection, the Urn of Uruk. Illustrator Joe Todd Stanton's bright illustrations and detailed cross sections will take you on a quest both across and within the ancient, mythical world, from Norway to Ancient Mesopotamia, where you can take a look inside the fabled hall of Valhalla, slice through the ancient pyramids of Giza and look under the surface of the teeming, enchanted Mediterranean of Odysseus...
