Ex.5 / page 59

The underlined words are the six pieces of corrected information:
This text is about modelling. Two young models talk about their modelling careers. Having good looks – or the ‘in’ look – as well as personality are extremely important in modelling. It is also important to have a good agent, a good portfolio and to be resilient. We learn that Nick became a model when his famous sister’s agency spotted him. Not all models are as lucky as Nick and some have to wait for a long time to get a job: Tracy is very attractive and has a fantastic personality and yet she has never had a modelling job. Modelling can be a disappointing occupation.

The person was probably rich and important – we know because of the fantastic jewels. He/She was probably a warrior – the large piece of gold jewellery was worn over the chest for protection in battle. He/ She didn’t die of natural causes – the skull shows a fracture on the side. His/ Her culture regarded death as the beginning of a new life – the position of the skeleton is like a baby in his / her mother. The person was a man – the pelvis is not too large. He was around thirty when he died – his teeth are quite worn. He probably ate meat and hard vegetables – his teeth are quite worn.
