Archaeologists Dig for Clues gives an accurate representation of what happens at archaeological excavations in the United States. The story shows how different children visiting an excavation come to appreciate the realities of fieldwork. And their pets add humor to the story too! Too often books about archaeology can develop into treasure hunts, adding to misconceptions of modern archaeology. This book shows no gold, and no one gets cursed by mummies. Instead, the children in the story help the archaeologist uncover small stone tools, the leftovers from an ancient meal and other artifacts which are typically found on excavations. The children also learn about how archaeologists look for patterns in their excavations, and try to relate what they see to past human behavior. There is a brief discussion of prehistoric time periods, focusing on the Midwestern United States, but the book is a great read for children anywhere.
