What can modern forensic tools teach us about existing and newly uncovered artifacts from ancient Chinese dynasties? How can we learn about human migration from the discovery of preserved bodies? Can todays technology uncover new clues about the Great Wall of China? Dive into this intriguing title, which examines how forensic science has allowed scientists, archaeologists, and historians to solve mysteries and answer questions about ancient China. From School Library Journal: Gr 2-5-Integrating science and history, this series uses archaeology as a means to explore the past. Highlighting techniques such as carbon dating, computer 3-D modeling, and soil sampling, each title describes how these methods are used to find and analyze evidence, answering questions about the various cultures and giving historians more information than they would gather from visual observations. Bright colors, plenty of sidebars, and spotlight features make these titles easy to navigate and highly attractive. The usual suspects of ancient cultures are featured. VERDICT Exploring familiar territory with a twist, these titles are good for schools looking to beef up their STEM work with students. α(c) Copyright 2011.
