Read and find out about what archaeologists are looking for, how they find it, and what their finds reveal in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
Archaeologists on a dig work very much like detectives at a crime scene. Every chipped rock, charred seed, or fossilized bone could be a clue to how people lived in the past.
In a starred review, School Library Journal called this a "delightful" book "that students will return to again and again." It's a fun introduction to the basics of archaeology and what you need to know to go on a dig.
