Basics of Archaeology

Middle schoolers identify what and how to complete an Archaeological excavation is conducted. They identify the transition from one layer to the next more easily if the colors of the layers are different. When creating a dig, the teacher should compress the soil layers as much as possible to mimic the harder layers on a real site. Finally, students analyze the dig site and test their assumptions, some surface finds should be visible to indicate the nature of the site.
