Review by: Linda Biondi, MiddleWeb - February 13, 2020
This book could actually serve as the backbone of your curriculum. It definitely is a hands-on resource for teachers who want to inspire new and amateur archaeologists to learn more about the past and how the past can shape our future. Students will be able to gain an overview of human history and the science that brings it back to life. The book is an outstanding educational resource on teaching archaeology in the fourth and fifth grade classroom and can definitely be adapted for upper grades as well. Imagine the excitement students will experience as they put on their archaeologists’ hats and begin their work to discover “artifacts” of the past.
