Indiana Jones was more adventurer than archaeologist. At least in his cinematic chronicles; he never really displayed the patience and persistence required on an archeological dig. But your little scientist can learn these archaeological virtues with the Archaeology Pyramid Dig 2012 Edition kit from Thames and Kosmos. The little one in your life will learn about all the aspects of archaeology, including surveys, excavation, conservation, dating, and remote sensing. Get digging!

And if you happen to stumble upon some mummy proteins in the process, let your little scientist-in-training know that we can now analyze those proteins thanks to ancient proteomics.
