This short story was first written and published in the year 1957, as part of a collection of short science fiction stories in the collection Astounding Science Fiction. Piper's story is unusual in focusing on the problem of archaeology on an alien culture. How is is possible to decipher writings of an alien race that died out 50,000 years ago? What could we possibly have in common with them? There can be no 'Rosetta Stone' with a shared language so is it impossible? That is the struggle of the protagonist and against all odds she does indeed find a way for our two cultures to meet. An excellent story well written. - Summary by Phil chenevert (1 hr 53 min)

Lost in the Forest

(3,5 Sterne)

This book was well written and narrated superbly ~ but the writer keeps the characters in a hike around the forest the whole book. You do like the characters and that is what kept me interested although I did skip parts occasionally. Altogether it wasn't my favorite Piper book.

So how does an archaeologist figure out a dead civilization? Here is one way! How does technology help? You may be surprised!

Nice book, great reading.
