The Adventures of Archaeological Doug is a book series about a 13 year old boy named Douglass and his eight year old sister, Sandy. Both of their parents are archaeology professors and, on occasion, are allowed to bring their children on business trips to various dig sites around the world. During their travels, the brother and sister team often help unearth interesting and unusual artifacts. Using their imagination, the duo transport themselves back in time to get a glimpse of how daily life may have existed generations ago. With the help of local residents, Doug and Sandy gather clues to ultimately figure out the purpose of the newly found relics. Once the answer is revealed, they return back to present day life and share what they learned with all the others.

In the end, Doug and Sandy use their imagination, knowledge, sense of humor, and adventurous spirit to discover the mystery of the object and the culture that surrounds it. There are a few setbacks and bumps along the way but that never stopped Doug and Sandy before. They are always up for the challenge.
