Archeology

Archaeology plays an important part in our society in shaping our world-view.  I have used this unit to introduce history for many years.  Students get very excited about reconstructing artifacts and speculating about their uses. 

Students also are fascinated at how the spade has confirmed many Biblical passages.

Later, as they study ancient civilizations, they are able to apply the lessons learned and bring a healthy dose of skepticism to some secular interpretations.

Pep up your history by teaching this unit and then presenting your history lessons through the lens of archaeology!
