A. The British Museum in London is one of the largest museums in the world. There are lots and lots of ancient objects from all continents, so if you don’t have a clear plan of action when you visit it, you’ll get lost among Egyptian mummies, Mexican masks, Viking swords and Greek sculptures. The place itself is ancient. It was set up in 1753 by Sir Hans Sloane, a doctor and a scientist. Here’re just a few of the things you can see there.
B. Egyptian mummies are always popular with museum visitors. There are real mummies of people and animals and amazing coffins (called sarcophagi). The Egyptians believed in life after death. They thought that when they died, they would make a journey to another world where they would lead a new life. To make that long journey they would need their bodies (as well as all the things they had used when they were alive). The men who made dead bodies into mummies were called embalmers.
C. At first only the very rich could afford mummification, but later it became a big industry and even the poor had their bodies mummified. The climate of Egypt is very good for preserving a body. A poor farmer died 5 000 years ago and his body was covered with the dry desert sand. It’s better preserved than many mummies. The man’s nickname is Ginger and he can be seen in the British Museum, too.
D. 5 000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians wrote things down using a picture writing called hieroglyphics. The Egyptians, however, didn’t call it that. The word ‘hieroglyph’ is Greek, but the Egyptians called their signs ‘words of the god’. The people who did the writing were called scribes. The scribes had a problem, however. The ancient Egyptians wrote everything down, absolutely everything! Although hieroglyphics were very pretty, it took time to write in pictures. Scribes needed a faster way to write things down, so they created a new form of writing called Demotic script.
E. The new scribes didn’t study the old language of hieroglyphics. They could write much quicker with some of the new scripts they created. Soon the skill of reading hieroglyphs was lost, and for hundreds of years, people didn’t know what they meant. Then in 1799, an officer of Napoleon’s army found a strange stone. This stone had the same short story written on it in Greek, in Demotic, and in hieroglyphics. This became the key to understanding Egyptian hieroglyphics.
F. The British Museum is famous for its collection of ancient sculptures which once decorated the outside of the Parthenon, a temple in Athens. By 1801, the Parthenon was falling apart. The British ambassador to Greece, Lord Elgin, wanted to save the temple’s marble sculptures. After asking for permission, Elgin asked workers to remove some sculptures off the temple and pick up others that had fallen to the ground. Elgin later sold the sculptures to the British government, which turned them over to the British Museum.
G. The British Museum has one of the world’s finest collections of totem poles. A totem pole is an artistic way that some Indian tribes used to tell a story. The totem pole, about 160 years old, was found in the village of Haida in Canada. In the past, it was beautifully painted, but now all the paint has disappeared. The Haida totem pole is 8 metres tall and made from the wood of a cedar tree. It stands in the Great Court of the British Museum.

This happened in Vienna at the beginning of 1922.1 was slowly walking along one of the main streets of the city and though the day was warm and sunny everything seemed gloomy to me as I was out of work.
I had no idea whom to ask for help. Suddenly I remembered that a friend of mine, John Smith by name, was working as an editor in Vienna for the last few months. I got in touch with him and we made an appointment for that evening.
When I told him my story he smiled and said happily, T can help you. Listen...'. The matter was that his boss wishing to get greater profits had decided to publish a number of detective novels and these were to be translated from Spanish. They needed a man who could do that.
'So you will do it’, he finished.
'How can I do it? I don’t know Spanish.’
'It doesn't matter,' he answered. 'Any translation will do.' I protested, he insisted, I protested, he insisted and at last he got me to agree to do it.
'Here is the novel and some money. You'll get the rest after you do the translation. I guarantee good money’, he added. 'I give you four days. Not more.’ With these words he left.
I was at a loss what to do. Then I went to a cheap restaurant where I knew I would meet my friends. There I found Hans. We all believed that he knew at least five or six languages including Spanish. I asked him to translate the novel. After some time he said, You see, I've been out of practice lately. But I’ll take the novel, read it and then tell you its contents.' I liked the plan.
Some days later I wrote down the contents of the book and went to editor. Smith was too busy to listen to what I wanted to tell him. 'Here is your money. You earned it honestly. See you one of these days,' he said. Later on I met Hans and gave him half the money.
'I think I ought to study Spanish,' he said taking money.
'But don't you know it?' I asked him in great surprise.
'Certainly, I don't', he said. 'I told you the contents of an English detective novel, I only changed the English names for Spanish.'
The narrator was very upset that day.
