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 this information-packed Lets-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, Kate Duke explains what scientists are looking for, how they find it, and what their finds reveal.
Young readers learn all about the painstaking field and laboratory work of archaeologists and others who search for the remains of humans and animals and then try to understand how they lived. Activities are clearly described, terms are defined within the text, and it is liberally illustrated. A perfect choice for the curious and any kid who has wanted to search for dinosaur bones.
