Archaeology Pyramid Dig


Sold Out

Play the role of archaeologist as you explore this pyramid model and the treasures buried within. After using hieroglyphics to decipher the secret to unlocking the pyramid, use tools and techniques similar to those of a real archaeologist to carefully excavate a sarcophagus and four canopic urns from the hardened sandy catacomb inside. Practice the best techniques for excavation on an archaeological site. Investigate the layout of the pyramid, its various chambers, hidden-passageways, and security devices by constructing a three-dimensional cross section of the pyramid. Learn how to create a gridded excavation site and a diorama. A full-color, 32-page manual gives step-by-step instructions for the activities and experiments.
