This unit could not have been produced without helpful
input from colleagues dedicated to archaeology outreach.
We would like to thank Stephanie Varholak, who was a
student intern in the Smithsonian’s Anthropology
Outreach Office when this project got underway, for
her insights and contribution to the initial drafts.
To our colleagues in Project Archaeology who generously
gave permission to include some of the materials from Intrigue of the Past and to the SAA’s
Public Education Committee who provided encouragement
and suggestions. To George Brauer, we are highly indebted
for his guidance in structuring this unit and in his
generosity in sharing some of his excellent educational
materials that we, in turn, can share with teachers
who like George want to give their students a challenging,
stimulating, and learned experience in the field of
