What historical site impresses you most?I’ve always been fascinated by the pyramids in Egypt.A few years ago I braved a long queue and climbed through a narrow passage to reach the main chamber deep inside one of them.Like millions of other tourists,I marveled (赞叹) at stone-walled rooms full of the magic of this ancient civilization.
But popularity might be the destruction of such archaeological treasures.Take Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings for example.It lay untouched for more than 3,000 years until the British archaeologist Howard Carter uncovered it in 1922.Now more than 1,000 people a day walk through it.
But as more and more people visit,the temperature and humidity inside the tomb change.As a result,the beautifully decorated plaster is coming away from the rock.
In order to preserve its heritage,a replica (复制品) of the monument is being opened about 1 kilometer away from the actual burial site.Specialists have recorded every detail of Tutankhamun’s tomb and used the data to recreate it.
Adam Lowe from the organization behind the project says the copy is identical to the original.He believes visitors will want to become part of the force that protects it rather than a force that is leading to its destruction.So they won’t mind seeing a replica.
But for historian Tom Holland,a copy is still a copy.He believes that although preservation is important,there is something unique about places like Tutankhamun’s tomb.He says it was built by people who believed in the world of the spirits,the dead and the supernatural.You don’t have to believe in a god or gods to feel a place is consecrated (神圣的) and has a particular quality that can’t be reproduced.
What about you?Would you visit a replica of a monument rather than the original to help preserve it?
1.What may account for the destruction of some archaeological treasures like Tutankhamun’s tomb?

D.Moving the tomb away from the actual site.
3.The underlined word “identical” is closest in meaning to .

B.visitors are advised to see replicas because preservation is first

More than 2,000 years ago,when the last shovelful(一铲) of dirt fell on the Tarracotta Warriors,it was thought that they would never see the sunlight again and would spend the rest of their “lives” guarding and protecting the first Chinese emperor,Qinshihuang,who died in 210 BC.
But things got better off these clay (陶土的) soldiers.Ever since they were discovered in Xi’an in 1974,by a group of farmers;they’ve been able to see the bigger world—traveling from one museum to the next.
They are now on display in New York at Discovery Times Square,reported the NewYorkTimes.
However,the story doesn’t end here.The roughly 2,000 soldiers found so far are estimated(估计) to be only one quarter of the total number.Moreover,scientists haven’t yet dared to touch the central tomb,which is believed to contain the body of the emperor himself.
“Partly it’s out of respect for the elders,” explained Kristin Romey,consultant(顾问) for the exhibition.“But they also realize that nobody in the world right now has the technology to properly go in and excavate(挖掘) it.”
This is true.According to ancient writings,the emperor’s tomb is circled by rivers of liquid mercury(水银) which is highly poisonous but can keep the body in good condition.Studies of the soil around the tomb also found a large amount of mercury.This makes exploring the tomb very dangerous.
The other reason that scientists have been hesitating is that they are afraid of the damage they might cause by opening the tomb.
“When we began excavating ‘the soldiers’,the minute they were exposed to air and sunlight,the pigment(颜料) just flaked off (剥落),” Romey told the FoxNews.
But he believes that the solution will come when science advances.Perhaps a visual robot can be sent into the tomb first to investigate and help figure out the best way to protect it.
In the end,scientists and historians must weigh their desire to know against the damage their digging might cause.“Archaeology,ultimately (最终),is a destructive science,” Romey said.“You have to destroy stuff in order to learn about it.”

B.To analyze why archaeology is a destructive science.
C.To introduce the Terracotta Warriors exhibition in New York.
D.To explain the risks of further excavating Qinshihuang’s tomb.
2.What can be concluded from the article?
A.It is estimated that about 10,000 clay soldiers were buried with Qinshihuang in his grave.
B.The decision whether to open the tomb or not is likely to be influenced by the pace of technological progress.
C.The highly poisonous mercury was used by Qinshihuang to keep away those who attempt to destroy his tomb.
D.Scientists won’t excavate Qinshihuang’s tomb until they think of a good way to preserve the body of the emperor.
3.The underlined word “investigate” in the second-to-last paragraph probably means .
C.take over D.settle down
4.What should scientists and historians pay attention to in their work according to the article?
A.They should respect the ancient world during their work.
B.They should always take their own safety into consideration.
C.They should balance the value and damages of their work.
D.They should have a continuous desire to know new things.
