If you have ever looked at a piece of pottery, a toy, or a coin from the past, then you have seen an artifact. Artifacts are things that people made and used. Over time, broken or unwanted objects were thrown on trash piles. Others were buried by natural disasters, or covered over by new buildings. This high interest text shows several artifacts related to American history, including toys, weapons, and documents. It explains how archaeologists use artifacts to gain information about life in the past. Inquisitive readers will enjoy delving into this fascinating way to explore our American heritage.

Series Review
Essays about what primary sources are and how they can be interpreted by current and future generations bookend content about specific types of primary sources. Using about two pages of text per piece and incorporating relevant images, the series’ authors highlight different primary sources, be they photographs, objects, or diaries, and provide good historical context for each. Connections and comparisons are also made with contemporary photographs. Native American tribes aren’t consistently identified when they are referenced, and some of the subjects are duplicated across titles. While no source notes are provided, the authors do list photo credits and suggest further reading and relevant and reputable websites. Critical-thinking questions are also interspersed throughout. The few misses aside, this series does well engaging readers with primary sources from U.S. history.
