                               A
   On May 3, 2002, archaeologists in England found a grave of a man dating back 
to around 2300 BC. Buried with him were the tools of a hunter or warrior. There 
was a bone pin that may have been from a piece of clothing such as a leather 
coat. He carried a  copper knife on his breast. The most amazing find was two 
gold  earrings. That would  have made him  a man  of distinction. Only  a few 
centimeters from his head were two  pots made of clay, tools and materials to 
make arrows, a bow and a dozen arrows for hunting and a second, smaller copper 
knife. Next to them lay a cushion stone, upon which the man could work metal.
   His grave is the richest of any found from that period, because this man was 
buried with two gold earrings which are the oldest gold ever found in Britain 
(dated  to 2470  BC). Besides,  he  was buried  three miles  from Stonehenge. 
Archaeologists tend to believe he was  a member of a powerful class who might 
have organized the construction of Stonehenge.
 Stonehenge was begun around 3000 BC. In about 2300 BC the huge stone circles 
were built. The  biggest stone weighed approximately 20 tons. But the smaller 
blue stones, still weighing 4 tons on average, came from west Wales. It is not 
yet known  how these were conveyed  over a distance of  380 km. It  is also a 
mystery how  early man  was able to  construct Stonehenge without the  use of 
modern construction machines and lorries.
 He is  an example of people who brought  culture and new techniques from the 
European  mainland to  Britain. In terms of technical development people were

                             B
THREATS TOOUR NATIONAL TREASURES
J: journalist     X: Prof Xu
J: People  have always had interests in the past.  Professor Xu, what are the 
most important dangers to our archaeological treasures?
X: They get damaged or  lost. It's a matter of education. People fail to take 
the right steps when something is found. Fortunately, the government has helped 
spreading the basic knowledge among the population, telling what is to be done 
when an archaeological find is made.
J: What does that knowledge consist of ?
X: Well,  when something is found, construction work must  be stopped and the 
police should be  told about the find.  That is to make  sure that no further 
damage will be done.
J: Does it still happen that people do not report things they find?
X:  Yes, indeed. They doubt  whether it is  necessary to do  so. It sometimes 
happens that a find is not very valuable. They are afraid that they would make 
scientists come for nothing.
                  中国现代教育网     www.30edu.com  全国最大教师交流平台

J: Are there other reasons why people don't report their finds?
X: Oh, yes. People are afraid that archaeologists may take a real interest in 
the site and spend many weeks or months digging around at it. That would result 
in farmers missing the right opportunity to plant crops or construction work to 
be stopped for a long time. They don't realize that they should not weigh their 
own business interests against our national history.
J:  If it is  so important to  dig things up  and collect them, then  why are 
archaeologists worried that  other people dig  up artifacts and  give them to 
museums or add them to their own private archaeological collections?
X: Archaeology is a professional discipline. Years of training and experience 
are needed. It is not just about finding things and digging them up. The field 
work must be  done very carefully. Of every find there  needs to be a written 
record,  to which a  photograph must  be added.  The records must  also state 
exactly what  was found,  where it was  found and  when. The outdoor  work is 
followed by work in the lab, cleaning, restoring and identifying each artifact. 
Finally, when  all is done,  an analysis must  be written and  published in a 
magazine or a book.
J: Are there any other dangers, natural disasters perhaps?
X: Unfortunately there are treasure hunters: people search for valuable objects, 
especially jewellery and gold.  They are the worst. History  does not need to 
fear nature very much. What has been buried has often been buried well. It is 
often human digging that causes the loss of valuable materials. It may seem a 
contradiction, but leaving things as they are  would often be the best way of 
keeping things for the generations to come.
41. The interview is probably a conversation between
      A. Mr Xu and his wife                    B. a student and a teacher
      C. a teacher and a newspaper reporter    D. a professor and a farmer
42. According to Professor Xu, there are ______ why people do not report finds.
      A. no reasons         B. certain threats
      C. few dangers        D. several reasons
43. The reason  why some people do not inform the police about archaeological 
finds is that ______ .
  A. they are afraid of the police
  B. the government has failed to inform the public
  C. they think working archaeologists will cause trouble
  D. they don't have the years of training and experience that are needed
44. For most artifacts ______ can quite easily see whether they are valuable or 
not.
   A. farmers   B. the police    C. construction workers   D. local experts
45. In the opinion of Professor Xu, the greatest danger to our archaeological 
treasures are ______ .
     A. natural disasters         B. farmers and construction workers
     C. scientists               D. treasure hunters

篇章结构

     A mental health researcher who has studied depressed mothers in Pakistan 
plans an effort next year to help them. Doctor Atif Rahman is in the Department 
of Child Psychiatry (精神病治疗法)       at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in 
England.
     Doctor Rahman led a team that linked depression (沮丧;消沉) in women with 
lower weight in their babies during the first year of life.   46  
The study identified one  hundred and sixty of the women, or  one in four, as 
depressed. They had lost interest and pleasure in normal life. They always felt 
sad  or tired.  They had problems  eating or  sleeping. They felt  guilty and 
thought about killing themselves.
      47   Re-examinations took place at two, six and twelve months of age. The 
health workers also re-examined the mental health of the mothers.
     Babies whose mothers remained depressed grew less than the babies of the 
other women. The babies of the depressed mothers were also more likely to get 
sick with diarrhea (腹泻).    The findings appeared in September in Archives of 
General Psychiatry(精神病学档案).        48  Other studies in South Asia have found 
that depression  affects almost twice as many  women in developing countries. 
Conditions in poor  countries can make it more difficult to  care for a baby. 
Doctor Rahman says depression can make it even more difficult for a mother to 
do things such as boil water to kill harmful organisms (微生物).
     49    These women visit new mothers for up  to a year. The workers offer 
advice about things like health and cleanliness.
      50    The  program will be  tested for three years  to see how  well it 
succeeds.
A. Now Doctor Rahman wants to add special support for depressed mothers.  The 
idea is that the health worker will listen to the mother's problems and suggest 
some easy things at first that she can do for her baby.
B. Earlier studies showed that ten to fifteen percent of pregnant women and new 
mothers in Western nations suffer from depression.
C. For ten years, Pakistan has employed what are called "lady health .workers".
D. The  team studied six hundred and thirty-two  women from small villages in 
Rawalpindi. The women were in good physical health and in the last three months 
of pregnancy.
E. The researchers compared these women with one hundred and sixty others who 
were not depressed. Health workers then weighed and measured the babies of both 
groups at birth.
F. The study showed that depression in women had nothing with lower weight in 
their babies.
