Review of The Archaeology Book

Master Books has done it again! I always enjoy reviewing their books as they make teaching and learning fun. The Archaeology Book by David Down is no exception.

The book is written for multi-age levels for family or independent reading. Each page is color-coded for independent reading: Yellow or Level One for 5th-6th grade; Blue or Level Two for 7th & 8th grades; and White or Level Three for 9th-11th grades. You can assign your children to read independently or read it together as part of family reading time.

The subject matter covers what archaeology is about as well as specific historical and cultural information related to the excavation of Egypt, the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel.

Beautifully illustrated with photos, diagrams and maps, this book is one you will want to keep on your shelves.

I liked this book so much, I incorporated into my unit study: Archaeology and the Bible. Enjoy!
