Publisher Comments:

This activity book features 25 projects such as making a surface survey of a site, building a screen for sifting dirt and debris at a dig, tracking soil age by color, and counting tree rings to date a find, teaches kids the techniques that unearthed Neanderthal caves, Tutankhamuns tomb, the city of Pompeii, and Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec empire. Kids will delight in fashioning a stone-age tool, playing a seriation game with old photographs of cars, “reading” objects excavated in their own backyards, and using patent numbers to date modern artifacts as they gain an overview of human history and the science that brings it back to life.

E I Talamante, March 10, 2015 (view all comments by E I Talamante)
I am very fond of archaeology. I have very deep feelings for the Science and method. So I was pleasantly pleased when my two-year-old pulled this from the non-fiction shelves at the library and insisted on checking it out.

The book is stock full of information and games to teach more about history and how archaeology fits into discovering our past. The book is organized into seven neat chapters, starting with an introduction to archaeology, and progressing through time and different aspects and processes used.

This is a good book for the curious child, the Indiana Jones fan, or those wanting to get a better idea of what takes place behind the scenes of a dig. It also has the different jobs that archaeologists perform offered in each chapter, ideal for those looking to start a career in archaeology.

The activities spread throughout were a nice supplement to the text, which admittedly can be dry at times, but would be great as a supplemented section at the back, or offered also in an appendix.

I think we will be trying the Time Capsule activity this weekend. It will be fun to see what everyone chooses for their contribution to the capsule!
