Do you have much in common with kids from long ago? Sure, their clothes and homes looked different. They ate different food and might not have ever gone to school. But they also made art--just like you. They helped their families with chores--just like you. They played with friends and siblings, and they explored the world around them.

Archaeologists know about the lives of children from the past because of what they left behind: toys, tools, clothes, and more. So get ready to travel back in time and check out the lives of kids--from European cave kids twenty thousand years ago to American Indian kids one thousand years ago.
