Amazing Archaeology – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Each of the titles in this series for younger readers covers a person or place from the past that has been discovered. Each topic is introduced, given historical context about how it was discovered, and additional facts are given. The sections vary in length but contain one short paragraph that corresponds with colorful full-page photos, renderings, or art that make the information easily comprehensible. For example, in Ötzi the Iceman readers learn that a rendering was done of Ötzi and “…his belongings are on display in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, Italy.” The combination of vocabulary words in bold, a simple map to show where the archaeological site was found, and a “More Facts” page at the end, make the topic more accessible to young readers. Although there is no time line of events included in the series, the text is written to enhance reader understanding, overall. Back matter includes a glossary, index, and a further reading website/QR code from the publisher. VERDICT A good first overview of archaeological sites.
