Synopsis: An illustrated history features four detailed acetates that peel back to reveal tombs and treasures of ancient history, including a Sumerian death pit, the tomb of Philip of Macedonia, a Moche warrior-priest's burial in Peru, and a sunken English warship.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-7?This volume explores some of the richest finds, in terms of wealth and gained knowledge about the past, that have been uncovered around the world. Charley hops from Egypt to Pompeii, to China and to the Americas, in search of El Dorado. Some sites, like the Taj Mahal, are treasures in themselves. Others began as holes in the ground, and revealed amazing things when excavated, such as a porcelain army or mummified bodies. Full-color "see through" illustrations provide cutaway views of many of the sites, with numbered captions to identify items and areas. Small photos of actual treasures (plates, pieces of eight, masks, etc.) help readers visualize the finds. The brevity of information and the format of the book make it better for browsing than research. Readers doing a report on Pompeii, for example, would be better served by Sara Bisel's Secrets of Vesuvius (Scholastic, 1991), which goes into more dramatic detail. This book will be most appreciated by armchair archaelogists, and treasure seekers.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
