1. Archaeologists are a type of scientist that study humans and the remains they left behind. Would you consider a career as an archaeologist? Why or why not?

2. How would you feel if your city was destroyed by an active volcano?

3. Over time, archaeologists excavated hundreds of buildings including shops and houses in the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy. Why is excavation important?


Students will be able to think like an archeologist and analyze a historical artifact using various multimedia sources (informational text, museum exhibit photos, and videos) to complete an artifact analysis one-pager.
