Describes how scientists can learn about the past and how ancient peoples lived by excavating rocks and other clues.

Archaeologists on a dig work very much like detectives at a crime scene. Every chipped rock, charred seed, or fossilized bone could be a clue to how people lived in the past. In this information-packed Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, Kate Duke explains what scientists are looking for, how they find it, and what their finds reveal.

I wasn't expecting much from this book, but I really liked it! It made me want to be an archaeologist by the time I was done reading it. As an adult, I definitely learned a lot, so I imagine for a kid it would be a great gateway into wanting to know more about archaeologists. I will be looking for more books in this series. Truly great quality for youth nonfiction.
