The First
When workers were digging a well outside the city of Xi’an,
China, in 1974, they made one of the greatest archaeological
discoveries in the world. (1)
The workers told the
Chinese authorities and archaeologists came to the site
where they found thousands more soldiers.
The soldiers are in underground corridors. They are similar to
each other, but each one has a slightly different appearance
and character. (2)
This terracotta army was
constructed to travel with the First Emperor of China into the
afterlife, according to the archaeologists.
At the age of 13, in 246 BC , Ying Zheng became emperor
of the states of what we now know as China. (3)
these states he created the empire of Qin. During his rule,
Ying Zheng standardised coins, weights and measures.
He also authorised the building of the Great Wall
of China.
Relatively early, he began planning his tomb and the
terracotta army which he needed for the afterlife.
Archaeologists have studied four areas around the tomb, but
they haven’t started digging where Ying Zheng is probably
buried. (5)
It says the tomb has models of palaces
made from precious stones and metals such as bronze.

brakujących zdań do luk w tekście.
W przypadku dobierania nagłówków pamiętaj, że:
• odnoszą się one do głównej myśli danego fragmentu tekstu,
a nie do np. jednego zdania;
• warto w nagłówkach zakreślić słowa kluczowe, a następnie
w tekście poszukać fragmentów zawierających podobne
informacje, wyrażone innymi słowami;
• nawet jeśli w nagłówkach pojawią się synonimy lub wyrazy
podobne do użytych w tekście, zawsze najistotniejsza jest
główna myśl;
• czytając fragmenty tekstu, warto skoncentrować się na
wyszukiwaniu różnic miedzy nimi, a nie podobieństw.
W przypadku uzupełniania tekstu brakującymi fragmentami
pamiętaj, że:
• należy zacząć od przeczytania całego tekstu i zrozumienia
jego myśli ogólnej;
• przy wpisywaniu w luki odpowiednich fragmentów należy
zwrócić uwagę na poszczególne elementy leksykalne
i gramatyczne – zaimki, czasy itp.;

Origins of the language
The variety of Native American cultures
The language of the newcomers
An ancient discovery in the rubble
The building falls to pieces
Unlike any other
In 2008 a battered piece of paper was pulled from the
ruins of an ancient Spanish colonial church. It turned out
to be a 400-year-old letter that had been penned by an
unknown Spanish author and lost for four centuries. Notes
on the back of it have revealed a previously unknown
language that was once spoken by the indigenous peoples
of northern Peru. But scientists have only recently revealed
the importance of these words.
The early 17th-century author had translated the Spanish
numbers – uno, dos, tres – and Arabic numerals into
a mysterious language never seen by modern scholars.
‘Even though the letter doesn’t tell us much, it does tell
us about a language that is very different from anything
we’ve ever known – and it suggests that there may be
a lot more languages out there,’ said project leader Jeffrey
Quilter, an archaeologist at Harvard’s Peabody Museum of
Archaeology and Ethnology.
The new-found native language may have borrowed
from Quechua, a language still spoken by the indigenous
peoples of Peru. However, it was clearly a unique tongue,
and possibly either Quingnam or Pescadora – ‘the
language of the fishers.’ The writings also include translated
numbers, which tell us that the lost language’s numerical
system was a ten-based or decimal system – like English.
This was not the case with all native American cultures.
While the Inca used a ten-based system, many other
cultures did not: the Maya, for example, used a base of 20,
according to Quilter.
Finding the new language at Magdalena de Cao Viejo
helps to reinforce our knowledge of the rich diversity of
cultures in the early colonial Americas. We often think
of a confrontation between the Spanish and Native
Americans, but in almost every place, from Massachusetts
to Peru, was more diversity than we may imagine. For
example, colonialists from many parts of Europe were
referred to as ‘the Spanish’ by the Native Americans, and
in the Americas there were people who spoke many
different languages and had different customs. The letter
helps to show how rich and diverse that world was.

A What is expected of me?
Fancy a dish of poisonous fugu fish? How about sheep’s
heads and rotting shark? All of these foods are delicacies
on menus around the world. In fact, what’s good or bad
is all a matter of taste. Food taboos and delicacies often
arise from cultural and religious beliefs; one person’s
meat is another’s poison. The humble hamburger,
a mainstay of US cuisine, is a forbidden food for Hindus.
Pork is also off the menu for many Jews and Muslims.
More than 1,400 species of protein-packed insects are
part of African, Asian, Australian and Latin American
cuisine, but one would be hard-pressed to find these
creepy crawlies in a US restaurant (at least in the menu).
‘Food is often a taboo or a subject triggering disgust
because it is internalised. Any disgust we have for the
food is magnified by the thought that it will become
part of us,’ says Carole Counihan, an ethnographer at
Millersville University in Pennsylvania. In New York, rats
are considered filthy creatures that consume human
garbage, carry disease and live in human waste – eating
one would be unthinkable. But in the West African nation
of Togo, rats live a more wholesome existence in the
forests and are sold in the village markets. ‘[West African]
rats are more like squirrels. They’re not in an environment
that’s filled with human filth,’ says Paul Rozin, a professor
of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania in
Food symbolises many aspects of everyday culture and
is a vehicle for social relations. In February, the people
of Iceland celebrate an old tradition called Thorrablot
– the festival of feasts. The feast comprises some
unusual delicacies such as sheeps’ heads and rotting
shark. Although these dishes strike most outsiders as
disgusting, for Icelanders the feasts are a great way
to preserve their Viking heritage. ‘The purpose of
continuing to eat these foods makes the rituals real and
distinguishes the festival culture from everyday life – it
reinforces history,’ says Nan Rothschild, an archaeologist
at Barnard College in New York. It also provides
a bonding experience for Icelanders. ‘By eating these
foods – which can be hard to eat – you prove your tie
to the community,’ Rothschild says.

The contest is open to all participants regardless of

should showcase the beauty of wildlife and highlight
the harmony between nature and people. There is
a limit of 10 entries per person. Each entry should be
accompanied by an entry form completed with the
required information and should be submitted online.
The First Place Winner will receive a substantial
cheque and his/her photograph will be published in
a high-ranking journal. Two runners- up will be invited
to participate in a prestigious wildlife photography
seminar. Prizes are non-transferable and may not be
substituted in any form.
Entries will be evaluated twice. In the first round a panel
of experts will shortlist 15 entries from among all
eligible entries. In round two the First Prize Winner and
two runners-up will be selected based on the following
criteria: creativity, photographic quality, colour. The
