Archaeology: Pyramid Dig (V 2.0)

Product Details

Your child can play the role of archaeologist as they explore this pyramid model and the treasures buried within. After they use hieroglyphics to decipher the secret to unlocking the pyramid, they can use tools and techniques similar to those of a real archaeologist to carefully excavate a sarcophagus and four canopic urns from the hardened sandy catacomb inside. Your Junior Archaeologist can practice the best techniques for excavating an archaeological site, such as digging, troweling, screening, brushing and record keeping. As they uncover the artifacts in the pyramid, your child will learn about important aspects of archaeological science, including surveys, excavation, conservation, dating and remote sensing.
