Imagine discovering an arrowhead that looks just as perfect as the day it was worked -- maybe over a thousand years ago! Who owned it? What was it used for? These are only some of the questions raised and answered in this book. Written for young people and their families, it connects us with our prehistory in a very empirical way. History lessons can often be best learned with a hands-on approach. Includes arrowhead hunting and amateur archaeology, surface hunting etiquette and responsibilities, stone facts, prehistory across America, and resources.

Amateur, or avocational, archaeologists have made extraordinarily important contributions to our knowledge of prehistory. In order for them to do so, it is essential that they be able to identify the artifacts their discoveries and that, when they find sites that warrant intensive investigation, they report them to those who maintain state records and who can refer them to well-qualified professionals. This book should be very helpful for amateurs who truly care about archaeology and who wish to increase their knowledge and to contribute to the preservation and interpretation of remains of prehistoric cultures.
