Can You Dig It?

Archaeology Lost & Found in the Sands of Time

How do we know so much about the past? Archaeologists dig it!

Let your archaeologist explore excavations and see real artifacts from around the world to learn what archaeology is, how archaeologists excavate a site, and what we can learn by studying the material culture left behind by people in the past.

With a whole world to explore, maybe your next question will be: “Where will she take us next?”

 I also loved that there were activities peppered throughout. Things like matching a site map to a photo of the actual site itself and learning about trade using King Tut’s mask are not only educational but they are FUN TO DO! The book is an excellent educational entry into the discipline of archaeology, and it ends by explaining how kids can become more involved.

This book is written in a simple and entertaining way. It is somewhat interactive with pictures that give it the feel of a real history book – except it is a science book!

Archaeology is such a fascinating subject. I have always loved history and to see what scientists are doing today to learn more about it is just so much fun.

You’re reading it to see the amazing photographs of real-life archaeologists at work, and the digs in progress. “What do you think that is?” “How do you think that was used?” You (or your child) will be asking that question on almost every page. This is a fabulous book for evoking or encouraging curiosity about history and historical peoples.
