Module 6 The World’s Cultural Heritage Section Ⅰ Introduction & Reading-Pre-reading
The Taj Mahal is considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and the finest example of the late style of Indian architecture. It is at Agra in northern India. It lies beside the River Jumna in the middle of gardens with quiet pools.
The Taj Mahal was built by the Mogul emperor Shah Jehan, who ruled India in the seventeenth century. It is in memory of his favourite wife, Arjumand Banu Bagam, known as Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631. The building, which was completed between 1632 and 1638, was designed by a local Muslim architect Ustad Ahmad Lahori. The whole building, with gardens and gateway structures, was completed in 1643. The Taj Mahal stands at one end of the garden tomb with marble path. The room is softly lighted by the light that passes through double screens of carved marble set high in the walls. The building now is kept in good condition.
The Taj Mahal took 22 years to build. Shah Jehan planned a similar building, but in black instead of white, to lie on the other side of the river. But before it could be built, Shah Jehan was imprisoned by his son and buried next to his wife in the Taj Mahal.

The Amazing①Caves of oudian
oudian is a small village about 50 kilometres southwest of Beijing. In the 1920s②， archaeologists③ discovered some prehistoric④ human bones there which changed China’s knowledge⑤ of its history⑥. They came from an unknown species⑦ of man and were the first evidence⑧ of primitive⑨ human life in China thousands of years ago. The remains⑩ were ... three teeth!
In 1929, a complete skull⑪ was also discovered. Eventually⑫， archaeologists found almost 200 items⑬， including⑭ six skulls and more than⑮ 150 teeth. These discoveries⑯ proved the existence⑰ of a human species who lived in the area⑱ between 700,000 and 200,000 years ago.
Four sites where Beijing Man and his relations⑲ lived⑳ were discovered on the northern face of○21 Dragon Bone Hill (Longgushan). They lived in the limestone○22 caves in the area.

Module 6课时跟踪练(一) Introduction & Reading — Pre-reading
Scientists recently discovered that pictures on cave walls at Creswell Crags are the oldest known in Great Britain. But they didn’t find out in the usual way.
Archaeologists often date cave art with a process called radiocarbon dating. The technique can measure the age of carbon found in charcoal (木炭) drawings or painted pictures. Carbon is an element (成分) found in many things, including charcoal and even people. But in this case, there was no paint or charcoal to test. People carved the pictures of animals and figures into the rock using stone tools. The scientists had an “aha！” moment when they noticed small rocck to the top of the drawings. The small rocst have formed after the drawings were made.
“It is rare to be able to scientifically date rock art.” said Alistair Pike, an archaeological scientist at Britain’s University of Bristol. “We were very fortunate that some of the engravings (雕刻) were covered by stalagmites (石笋)．”
When a test proved that the stalagmites formed 12,800 years ago, the scientists knew the art underneath them had to be at least that old. And some of the animals shown, like the European bison, are now extinct — another tipoff (征兆) that the art is quite old.
The artists came to Creswell Crags. This place is one of the farthest points north reached by our ancient ancestors during the Ice Age. At that time, much of the North Sea was dry, so people could move about more easily.
Some tools and bones found there are 13,000 to 15,000 years old. They show that the travelers hunted horses, reindeer, and arctic hares. Their artwork is similar to art in France and Germany. It tells scientists that the Creswell Crags artists must have had a close connection to peoples several thousand kilometers away — another important evidence of understanding how humans spread out across the world.

A．who study things left behind by people in the past
B．who have rich experience in painting

A．how ancient people crossed the North Sea
B．why some of the animals have died out
C．how humans spread out across the world
D．what ancient people had for food at that time

One week after I started working in Beijing, I decided to visit a place of interest called the Summer Palace. Before setting off, I researched into it on the Internet. The Summer Palace is composed mostly of a lat it’s surrounded by beautiful greenery and a walkway that circles the lake. It is recommended that you give the Summer Palace about three hours. If you try to w
