About the Story
Having studied and practised Anthropology for over 10 years, you had all but given up on your dreams to make some great discovery that would put your name in the history books. Until, that is you received a Telex from your Russian Archeologist friend, Sergio Kirov, currently working in Tibet. In it he claimed to have discovered evidence of a civilisation that had advanced at exactly the same rate as the rest of Mankind, yet totally independent of it. Sergio requested that you come to Tibet as quickly as possible to give your expert advice. Naturally you booked a flight as soon as you could.
Landing at Lhasa airport you found that Sergio was not there, but one of the locals told you that he had left a message telling you to meet him at the dig site. As this was on the lower slopes of the Himalayas - easily accessible by aicraft - and you being a competent pilot, you hired a run down Cessna from a small airfield and set off, following Sergio's instructions on how to find the dig.
You were, however, in too much of a hurry to check the weather forecast and you soon became caught in a freak snowstorm that took you higher and higher into the mountains. The tiny plane's engine could not cope with the altitude and soon gave up, leaving you flying blind with no engine. Your Mayday calls went unanswered, so you decided to try and land, hoping and praying that you were above flat land.
Breaking through the dense cloud cover you were relieved to see a dazzling white snowfield spread below you. Desperately preparing for a crash landing, you were distracted by a glint of sunlight on glass - a building! Could THIS be the lost civilisation?
Your attention however was drawn back to the ground hurtling towards you...
