Archaeology is learning about ancient people, how they lived, what they looked like, what tools they used and also learning about their culture. Kids love learning about past civilizations and how earlier people lived. They also love to dig in the dirt. Indulge both of these loves by nurturing their interest in archaeology. Through books, games, and learning projects, children can enjoy discovering more about what has come before them.
