The mood the author was trying to get is when he wrote revolution I think he was excited. The next word that I chose is brushed.

I think that the author is trying to make the word discovered sound old because the word in front of it is first. Another word that I chose is Thousand. I think the author is trying to make thousand sound a long time and I think that because before the word or and before that is hundred, and the sentence is “In fact, food preserved in salt could be taken hundreds or thousands of miles to be traded or sold.” It seems like it going to take a very long time to travel there.

I think that the author is trying to make the word depended seem to be very important, it’s like the author is trying to make the word sad that if you don’t have the item you would die. The second word that I chose is bulky. It sound like the author is trying to make salt sound tough, but it could also mean that carrying salt is very heavy and takes to much space.Part 5Central Idea of SectionCelts mined were mining rock salt in Europe.
