Summer SAVY 2019: Session 1, Day 4 – Archaeology 101 (Rising 3rd/4th)
Today was a busy day for Anthropology 101! We began the morning with a quick recap of what we learned in the bone lab yesterday. Again, I was impressed with how much they remember and understand! We wrapped up our lab portion of the class by refitting the broken pottery they uncovered in their survey and excavations. We finished the morning by learning about study of historical documents. The talked about the discovery of the Rosetta stone and learned to write our names in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. We looked at real documents from the past 500 years and practiced deciphering words.
