Re
ad the texts about lost civilizations. For each question, choose the correct answer
A, B, C

or
D
. There is an example at the beginning
(

).


The Vikings


Gokstad is a burial ship from the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway. The ship was found
in Norway in 1880, and it was built around 890 AD. It was used to bury a powerful chief who
died around 900 A
D. Many rich Vikings were buried under the earth in ships, along with their
weapons, jewellery and other
possessions
. The Vikings thought that the ship would take them
safely to the land of the dead. The Vikings are remembered as pirates. They were fierce
warriors. They terrorized many seaside towns in Europe from the late 700s AD to about 1100
AD. But they were mainly farmers and traders as well as excellent craftsmen. The Vikings
developed ships that could travel very far. Viking warships were light, so t
hey could sail on
shallow

rivers and through rough seas. The Vikings reached as far as Baghdad in search of
trade and conquest. They
set up

trading towns around Europe and discovered and settled in
Greenland when it was still unknown. The Vikings were brav
e sailors and explorers. They
landed in North America 500 years before Christopher Columbus.


The Celts


A Celtic roundhouse is the traditional home of the Celts. The roundhouse was made of timber
and had a thatched roof. This way smoke could float out but rain couldn’t get in. Cooking and
washing were done on the central fire, while people slept around insid
e of the wall. Historians
say that the Celts came from southern Germany. Their influence spread to Spain, Britain,


northern Italy and even reached as far as Turkey. The Celts were mainly tribes of farmers,
divided and spread through different areas.
They were bound together by the Druids, who were learned priests and lawmakers, wise men
and bards. Bards were poets who would travel from place to place, singing poetic songs. They
were a very important part of
Celtic life. Through the bards’ songs and poems, people learnt
workers and artists who made jewellery, weapons and pottery. Like the Vikings, the Celts
were
fierce

sav
age
warriors and used iron to make weapons. Around 80 AD they came under
Roman rule. After the fall of Rome, Celtic ways survived only in Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany
and parts of Wales and Scotland.


The Maya


The Maya were an American Indian people. They
developed a magnificent civilization in
south Mexico and Central America which peaked from 250 AD to 900 AD. The Maya were
greatly influenced by the Olmec people. The Olmec lived west of the Maya around 800 BC
and were probably the Central American invento
rs of writing, numbers and calendar. The
Maya made huge progress in architecture, writing and sciences. They were also skilled
craftspeople. They made stone sculptures and
carvings

from jade (a precious green stone).
The Mayan population increased rapidly.

The Maya built grand and huge cities, like El
Mirador and Tikal. These cities were carefully planned, with many beautiful temples that
looked like Egyptian pyramids. They had well laid
-
out roads and large open spaces. After 950
AD, the Mayan civilization
slowly
declined
. In the mid
-
1500s the Spanish conquerors
invaded and conquered almost all of the Mayan Empire.
