The next few days will be our kick-off to our Prehistory lessons. What better way to start than to learn what archaeology is?

the scientific study of historic or prehistoric peoples and their cultures by analysis of their artifacts, inscriptions, monuments, and other such remains, esp. those that have been excavated.

We read the book, Archaeologists Dig For Clues, discovered what archaeology is and what an archaeologist does, the terms artifacts, excavating, etc… Satori could not wait to start gathering supplies for her dig of a “mysterious” civilization!
