What is Archaeology?
Archaeology is the study of human society, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the
material culture and environmental data that they have left behind, which includes artifacts,
architecture, biofacts and cultural landscapes (the archaeological
record). Because archaeology employs a wide range of different
procedures, it can be considered to be a study of both science and
humanity, and in the United States it is thought of as a branch of
anthropology, although in Europe it is viewed as a separate discipline.
Archaeology studies human history from the development of the first stone tools in eastern
Africa 3.4 million years ago up to recent decades. It is of most importance for gaining knowledge
about prehistoric societies, when there were no written records for historians to study, making up
over 99% of total human history, from the Paleolithic until the
advent of literacy in any given society. Archaeology has various
different goals, which range from studying human evolution to
cultural evolution and understanding culture history. Archaeological
guides help us to reach those prehistoric days when the civilization
was born.

Archaeology for Kids: Uncovering the Mysteries of Our Past, 25
Activities

Author
: Richard Panchyk
ISBN
: 1556523955
"Archeology for Kids: Uncovering the Mysteries of Our Past" is intended to
Richard Panchyk begins with a Time Line that starts in 65 million B.C. when
the last dinosaurs died out and ends in 1997 when a new Egyptian burial
ground was found, containing almost 10,000
mummies.
Actually it is not the end of the dinosaurs but the
first Ramapithecus, Australopithecus and other
human ancestors that matter more because this time
focus on not only key historic events such as the end
of Roman Empire and the American Civil War, but
key events in the field of archeology, such as when
Schliemann began searching for the city of Troy and
the Australopithecus remains of "Lucy" being found.
This will give teachers an idea of where (and when)
today's students. Then there are the more than 25 activities that will help
those young students understand archeology and the ancient cultures that
have been uncovered.

Archaeology A Very Short Introduction
Author
: Bill Tidy, Paul Bahn
ISBN
: 0192853791
ISBN13
: 9780192853790
In the Preface to this excellent little book, the author says his intention is to
give the reader a taste of the subject and to help students decide if they
want to study archeology at University. It performs those tasks admirably. It
quite rightly provides a very broad overview rather than going deeply into
specific topics, but manages to cram in loads of interesting facts along the
way. The tone is jocular, and sometimes the humor is rather forced
("Relative dating does not mean going out with your cousin") but for the
most part it works, and Bill Tidy's cartoons are well up to
standard.
Bahn is pretty harsh with some modern archeological
notions, and objectivity toward his peers is clearly not a
priority with him, but I don't think this seriously distorts
what he has to say.
The very title betrays the fact that this is a British
publication with British usage and spellings, but I did not
spot anything that would cause a problem for an
I do not know of a better short introduction to the subject than this book.
Following this, you might want to read Egyptology, another excellent entry in
the same series.
