Archaeology is a great way to incorporate Science and History together at the same time. There are so many types of historical artifacts you can learn about that can tie into your history studies. You can learn about archaeologists as scientists and historians, or you can do a unit study on archaeology digs. I love the freedom that homeschooing gives us that we can learn about any subject that interests our children!

Archaeology is the scientific study of material remains such as pottery, tools, ruins, of past human life and cultures. It is also the study of the remains of a culture, people or animals. It is so fascinating to learn about.

When studying Archaeology (especially when you learn about fossils and dinosaurs) I have found a lot of conflicting information on the age of the Earth and many tie ins to evolution. If you teach from a Creationist, young Earth viewpoint make sure you will want to be cautious of where you are getting your resources. You will want check out all the resources at Answers in Genesis! They have many resources on Archaeology right HERE that are from a Creationist, young earth perspective. There are challenging and interesting blog posts, magazine articles, research papers and much more.
