Ljubljanica River gives up gifts

In an excerpt from the December 2006 issue of National Geographic Magazine, Carol Kaufmann looks at the reasons why Romans, Celts and others dumped their precious treasures into the Ljubljanica River in Slovenia.

Among the items found by archaeologist Andrej Gaspari are swords, coins, and other luxury items. Did early people people the river to be sacred? Gaspari hopes to investigate this and other theories.
