EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES FROM THE STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF WISCONSIN:
 
DIGGING AND DISCOVERY: Wisconsin Archaeology
http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/publications/oss/digging_and_discovery.aspcreate bookmark
 
"This 80-page book introduces elementary and middle school readers to Wisconsin peoples—ancient and
recent—and explains how examining the bits and pieces they left behind gives us clues as to the way
they lived. The book is divided into eight chapters, and begins with a description of Wisconsin's
first inhabitants: Paleo-Indians, Archaic Indians, and Woodland Indians. Subsequent chapters take the
reader from early Indian cultures to those of the Europeans and Euro-Americans, with discussion of
fur trading, lead mining, logging, and farming. The last chapter focuses on stewardship, showing that
we can all play a part in taking care of our past. 

Kid-friendly in format, with lively and charming original illustrations of badgers-as-archaeologists,
the book is packed with drawings, photographs, and informational side bars that expand on concepts
introduced in the text."
