Synopsis

The Treasures of the Seven Seas Cleopatra and the Mystery of the San Diego by Marianne Meyer Bianchi, Franck Goddio

This remarkable children's book takes readers on an undersea adventure as they follow Franck Goddio and his daring team of underwater archaeologists searching for artefacts from lost cities. Spellbinding photographs show how, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, finds from the seabed provide a new picture of what life was like in Egypt during the age of Cleopatra. Goddio and his team invite young readers to accompany them in their exciting work, and to experience the difficulties, successes and surprises of a present-day adventure. Children will enjoy hours of entertaining and informative reading as they learn exactly what it's like to discover history at the bottom of the sea.
