    Great Mystery Monday!
    The book is the famous encyclopedia “Naturalis Historia ” that was written by Pliny the Elder, a roman philosopher in the 70’s ( AD) . In this book he wrote about the “Seres” – people of the “land where silk comes from. The Seares lived in south east Asia in a country named Serica.
    Very interesting Thanks!
