Archaeological Analysis: Pieces of the Past
Roll up your sleeves and get ready to dig. This site from Canada's Royal Ontario Museum offers a tutorial on excavating historic sites, as well as an online simulation of a fictional excavation. Use what you know about archaeology as well as the soil at the site, existing structures, and the clues from the artifacts found there to learn about the past.

Flints and Stones: Real Life in Prehistory
Step back in time to the world of Stone Age hunter gatherers. Travel with the Shaman, the Stone Age people's leader or with a present-day archaeologist to learn about the daily lives of these people. Wonderful illustrations, photographs, and explanations will help you learn a great deal not just about hunter gatherers in Stone Age Europe, but also about the types of questions archaeologists ask and the knowledge they gain.
