Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Archeology explores the methods of archeology as well as some of the ways the past is preserved-e.g., in ash, in ice, in peat. Examples of artifacts extend beyond the well-known structures and statuary; chapters review the preservation of ancient documents and industrial archeology.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6This series entry touches on aspects of archaeology in many locations around the world. Each double-page spread examines one or two concepts: preservation and decay, excavation, clues to the past, human remains, fakes and forgeries, etc. Paragraph headings are occasionally annoyingly cute, e.g., ``Big Brother is Watching,'' ``Caught in the Act,'' and ``Getting Plastered.'' Full-color photographs are scattered across the spreads with brief, museumlike labels that offer tidbits of random information. A few photographs almost fill the page, but most are very small. Readers are not likely to use this book for research, but will want to make repeated short visits.Jeanette Larson, Texas State Library, Austin
