Two students, Beth and Carl, are talking about the red-haired mummies. (B=Beth; C=Carl)
B : Can you imagine what it was like 4,000 years ago?
C : That's hard to imagine. But if the mummies could speak, they could certainly tell us a great deal.
B : Well, that, of course, is impossible. But scientists can tell a lot from the things the explorers found.
C : I know. For example, they think the 4000-year-old mummies were Celts.
B : Who were the Celts?
C : They were ancient European people who settled in Britain even before the Romans existed.
B : Wow! That's amazing!
C : So you see, although mummies don't really speak, they are "speaking" from their graves.
B : Stop it! You're giving me the creeps!
