About the Author:

Richard Panchyk is coauthor of Engineering the City. He holds a master’s degree in anthropology and has taught college-level archaeology.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-9-In a comprehensible, often-conversational text well larded with small photos, engravings, and diagrams, Panchyk presents an introductory overview of the field, including methodology, a basic run-through of eras, information boxes on interesting sidelights, and activities perfect for classroom reinforcement. Not an in-depth source by any means, this survey will be useful to students intrigued by the science of uncovering the past or merely looking for another source for report material. For the teacher looking for resources to create an archaeology curriculum, or to spice up an ancient history unit already in place, it will be valuable. In the hands of enthusiastic adults, and combined with other less textbookish works, such as W. John Hackwell's Digging to the Past (Scribner's 1986; o.p.), Michael Avi-Yonah's Dig This! How Archaeologists Uncover Our Past (Runestone, 1993), or Xavier Hern ndez's handsome Lebek: A City of Northern Europe through the Ages (Houghton, 1991; o.p.), it may open a wide window on the pageant of human history stretching behind our present.
