About this item


Our ancestors did not always write down their history, so archaeologists search for clues to learn more about how people once lived. In Archaeology: Cool Women Who Dig, readers ages 9 through 12 dig into the past through the challenges and successes of three dynamic women working in the field today. Chelsea Rose is a historical archaeologist with Southern Oregon University, Alexandra Jones runs Archaeology in the Community in Washington, DC, and Justine Benanty is a maritime archaeologist from New York City.
Nomad Press books in the Girls in Science series supply a bridge between girls’ interests and their potential futures by investigating science careers and introducing women who have succeeded in science. Compelling stories of real-life archaeologists provide readers with role models that they can look toward as examples of success.

Archaeology: Cool Women Who Dig uses engaging content, links to primary sources, and essential questions to whet kids’ appetites for further exploration and study of archaeology. This book explores the history of archaeology, the women who helped pioneer field research, and the varied careers in this exciting and important field. Both boys and girls are encouraged to find their passion in the gritty field of archaeology.
