Dig It! Archaeology for Kids



Dig It! Archaeology for Kids takes readers on a tour through the fascinating world of archaeology, pausing along the way for glimpses into the past lives of people in ancient civilizations across the globe throughout time. This archaeological journey itinerary includes steps in archaeology―finding a site, excavation, lab work, interpretation, and conservation―and types of archaeologists. Bonus topics include tie-ins to the fields of history and art history, household archaeology, artifact museum ownership, and the impact of climate on artifacts.

These pauses at new and familiar archaeological sites exemplify each new topic on our tour by demonstrating how these amazing discoveries incorporated archaeological methods. These entertaining, real-life examples are accompanied by beautiful visual spreads, many which include QR codes that kids and parents can scan with their smartphones to watch drone fly-over videos of archaeological sites and demonstrations of dig techniques!
