Task 4. Do you know what was happening at the beginning of the 20th century in the field of archaeology? To learn about it put the pieces of the news in the logical order and choose the best summary.
Start from the following piece:
3. British archeologists have every reason to be proud of the results obtained in the twenty-five years since 1910, wherever they have worked. In studying the earliest history of man, they have been well to the fore,

13. though naturally, as always, the implication and meaning of their discoveries has to be worked out in cooperation with the results of foreign colleagues. In 1911 and 1912, Mr. Dawson
15. had his capital, helps to show that, long before the Roman conquest, the British had begun to adopt Roman civilization.
1. and Miss Garrod have scientifically explored caves and found Neanderthal skulls associated with stone implements of Levalloisian type, but full details are not yet available. In East Africa,

18. found more skull fragments at Piltdown, but the exact form and type are still in doubt. Since WW2, evidences of early man have accumulated rapidly. Some
6. a wonderful series of early cultures was found in 1931 at Oldoway, and in 1933 Mr. Leakey found, at Kanam, the oldest fragment of a real ancestor of man yet discovered. The Kanam man, who is not of the Neanderthal type, is apparently to be regarded as contemporary with Piltdown man, who is more nearly related to Homo sapiens than to any other known human type,

17. but is considered a branch of the same stock. The archeology of Britain is a good illustration of co-ordinated scientific work. In the Paleolithic Age,
4. as an earthwork, but air photographs, in 1925 revealed it as a complicated enclosure with six “circles” of post-holes. About 1800 B.C., the Bronze Age in Britain began
5. the most important discoveries are those of Mr. Moir at Cromer and of Mr. Warren at Clacton, which have added a new culture to those previously known in England. The Neolithic Period is only jus being understood, and discoveries since the war have quite changed its aspect. The stone axes,
11. are accidental finds, like the Boskop skull in South Africa, the Lloyds skull from London, and the most important Broken Hill skull from Northern Rhodesia, where scientific investigation, if it had been undertaken in time, would have been of the utmost value. In Palestine, Mr. Turville – Pete
12. which lasted into the Bronze Age, are no longer regarded as the sole criterion, and attention is paid instead to the “camps” and the pottery. Investigation of the long barrows, as in Lincolnshire, and the flint-mines, indicates a new culture introduced by European invaders about 3000 B.C. The problem of

9. in Wessex. One of their centres was the pre-Roman Verulamium, where Cassivellaunus, Cesar’s opponent, ruled. The burial found in the Lexden Tumulus at Colchester, where Cunobelinus (Cymbeline)
10. In the early Iron Age, too, Britain received a constant trickling of immigrants from America by two main routes, either across the Channel and North Sea,
7. has yielded evidence for habitation at various periods, and a wonderful silver treasure, probably an accumulated booty from Gaul of Saxon sea-raiders in the fifth century A.D. The clearing of “Pictish” villages by Professor Childe, at Skara Brae in Orkney, and by Mr. Curle at Sumbrough, in Shetland, has given a vivid picture of life in those islands in the late Bronze Age.
14. or from the Atlantic coasts of Western Europe into the south-west. The correlation of excavated hill-forts, burials, lake villages, like those at Meare and Glastonbury, and scientific study of apparently unimportant discoveries, have shown that about 75 B.C. a new tribe, probably the Belge, spread in south-east England, north of the Thames, and
16. with the Beaker People (probably Celts), so called from their typical pottery. Here the mapping and study of finds by Lord Abercromby, Mr. J.G.D. Clark, Sir Cyril Fox, and others tell the history of their coming and their connection with the round barrows.

2. Piccadilly Circus and its date are not yet solved, though Dr. Thomas has shown that its “blue stones” were brought from Pembrokeshire, and Mr. Crawford, by air survey, has revealed interesting new facts. Whoodhenge, near by, had been known
8. In the study of the Roman Britain, the same methods have been adopted, and here the debt to Professor Haverfield, Sir G. Macdonald, Dr. Collingwood, Mr. Bushe Fox, and Dr. Wheeler is great. The history of the Roman invasion and occupation has been re-written, and their salient events re-dated. In Scotland, Traprain Law

Do you really expect us to do all this work for you.

You didn't even say 'please'.
