Children's book about the project

"Geheimnis des Tells" tells the exciting story of two children from Cologne, Katia und Aaron, who travel to the Orient to visit their grandparents. Their grandfather - a retired archaeologist - takes them with him to the tell to discover its secrets...

The book is currently in German language only, but due to the enormous response from readers and reviewers, an English-language version is under consideration.
