Free Kids Activity Pages, Free Kids Coloring Pages Where do Archaeologist go to Study People
~ Finding a "site" where people lived is just a matter of looking for it.
~ It might be the remains of an old log cabin built in the 1800s somewhere in East Texas or an adobe house in West Texas.
~ It might be a dugout built in West Texas by early settlers.
~ These are all historic sites.
~ Prehistoric peoples lived all over the earth . Sometimes they lived in rock overhangs called rock shelters. They also lived in campsites that were not protected from the weather very well.
~ They had to have some type of shelter in these open campsites, but it was likely simple since they frequently moved.

Free Kids Activity Pages, Free Kids Coloring Pages What Tools do Archaeologists use?
~ Basic Tools: shovels, buckets, trowels, screen ( like a sieve) ,tape measures , brooms, little brushes, string, screens
A screen has wire squares that allow the dirt to go through but keeps the artifacts much like a sieve
~ Specialized equipment: survey equipment to help make a map of the site. Modern science equipment are often called "Total Data Stations"
~ Shovels are not used very often, . If there is earth to be shifted that doesn't have artifacts in it you can use a shovel, but you have to be careful. Usually Archaeologists use trowels (pointed tools which are also used by bricklayers) and dig very carefully so they do not miss any vital clues. Artifacts could easily break if you do no take proper care

Have you ever wanted to do an Archeological Dig?

Free Kids Activity Pages, Free Kids Coloring Pages How to be an Archaeologist in your Garden
First try and find out a little bit of the history of your town or village
~ you might be able to locate some information on the Internet, research some old maps of the area in your library or ask
~ see whether there is an interesting spot in your garden ( providing permission has been given)
~ if you do not have access to a garden or backyard try and find a local Archaeology for kid society and find out whether you can join

Free Kids Activity Pages, Free Kids Coloring Pages Ready to Dig?
~ Get all the basic materials that you need together
~ Now we are ready to start digging (excavating).
~ Keep a record of the area where you are about to start digging
~ Create a square ( maybe 1mtr by 1 mtr ) and mark it out
~ keep records of where each artifact was found (clues, remember).
~ Dig carefully so all the artifacts can be mapped and photographed.
~ Put all the earth into buckets and take them to a screen.
~ Some artifacts and clues are very small and can easily be missed. Using the screen helps finding even the smallest clue..
~ It sieves out rocks, wooden pieces ,grass and all sorts of rubbish
~ Run some water from a hose over the earth to help get it through the screen

~ Collect all the artifacts you find and try to identify where they might belong
~ Try and notice what materials they are made of

~ Can you find pieces that belong together but have been broken apart?
~ Can you imagine who might have left the pieces there?
~ And Why?

It takes a long time to excavate a site fully but great fun can be had on a simple Garden Dig.

Archaeologist have to know about history, geology, math, and, of course, Archaeology.
