Synopsis

Lost Cities by Nicola Barber

'Lost Cities' examines the search for lost cities and the important artefacts within them that can offer us an extraordinary window on to the past. Part of the Treasure Hunters series, 'Lost Cities' offers a cross-curricular mix of science & technology and history & civilizations, with a fun, dramatic approach. Cities covered in the book include Pompeii, Troy, the desert city of Ubar, and the Inca city of Machu Picchu. The book also looks at the motives for these searches, and the importance of responsible archaeology: were the treasure hunters driven by personal greed or glory, or did they embark on their quest with a historical interest and a desire to preserve the lost treasures?

About the Author

As well as writing about lost cities, Nicola Barber has written books on the modern-day cities of Tokyo and Los Angeles. She has also written about many periods of history, from the Vikings to the Victorians. Nicola lives in North Wales. Martin Bustamante is an illustrator and painter from Argentina. At the age of 3 he was able to draw a horse starting by the tail as his mother always says. As a teenager he was inspired by fascinating worlds full of colors, shapes, and atmospheres found in movies and books such as Star Wars and Prince Valiant. Drawing and painting quickly became Martin's passions and he began working as a professional illustrator. Martin's work has appeared in several publications from Argentina, the United States, and Europe.
