Without the help of archaeologists throughout time, very little would be known about some of the world’s greatest civilizations. Archeology, with its carefully developed preservation techniques, is responsible for uncovering artifacts like the Greek sculptures and Native American weaponry we see in museums everyday. Be an eyewitness to the fascinating world of archeology. See a loaf of bread preserved for 2,000 years, the first human skeleton ever discovered, a corroded cannon from a shipwreck, and a reconstructed helmet made of gold, silver and bronze. Learn about carbon dating, how to tell the difference between a fake and the real thing, why tombs were plundered, and the secrets behind standing stones. Discover where the world’s first iron bridge was built, how a dig is organized, a “ghost ship’s” impression in the sand, how rescue evacuations are carried out, and much, much more! Discover the world of archeology, how to piece together civilizations of the past and why it matters today.
