What might we find?

Today, archaeologist Tracy shares with us what she thinks they might find in the new area that is being opened this summer.

Junior Archaeologist Assignment: Look around your neighborhood and find examples of things Archaeologist Tracy mentioned in the video. Take photos of some of the things you think might still be standing if someone were to excavate your neighborhood in a 1000 years. Can you find anything that you think would not be here in 1000 years? Why do you think it won't be here?

Question of the day: Why do you think things like roads, walls, and floors survive thousands of years after being built?  Does the material used to build these structures have any impact on how long they can stand? What building materials that we are using today would with stand time? What materials would not?
