A Sneak Peek Into A Museum

A Sneak Peek into a Museum
Hi! Didn’t see you there! I bring new information regarding the archaeology dig site. By the way this is Dr. Bones speaking. Now that we know that our pot came from an ancient civilization called Jerith. Jerith is on the coast of Australia in what is now known as Brisbane, Australia. The Jerithians live in wooden huts if they are very important people or if they’re wealthy but if they aren’t as important or if they are poor they live in the local cave. They eat bugs, rice, beans, seeds, stew and some wild animals. This information is just some of the many things that we’ve learned about Jerith!
The real reason I am babbling on about is the upcoming event about our new found civilization. We get the opportunity to share all about Jerith using a museum exhibit! In our exhibit we will tell the audience about where Jerith is located, what food they eat, the kinds of animals that live there, their religion and their culture. Also you will get to see real artifacts that came from Jerith. The best part of the exhibit will be our 3D model of Jerith. The funniest part of our exhibit will the interactive. You will get to dig out actual artifacts from Jerith, once you dig them out you will have to try to piece them together because none of the artifacts are whole. Currently we are working on the religion of Jerith.
Oops I’ve already said too much……if you want to learn more check back in with me after December 1. I hope you enjoyed my sneak peak into our museum tour! Thanks!

Location Suspicion

Hey there, me again! Just to clarify it’s Dr. Bones. I just got some REALLY exciting news regarding the dig! My group and I suspect that the ancient civilization was located on some sort of beach! We think this because the substance that all of the artifacts were found in was moist sand! We figured that the beach would be a perfect hypothesis for where the civilization was founded! Also to back up that research we found lot’s of colorful and dull sea shells. Check back in with me soon because I’m sure we will have new, innovative news!


Culture of Archeaology

Hi there! It’s Dr. Bones checking back in with new information about my dig site! So far we have found all the buried artifacts in our soil! But now we have started digging deeper into our soil by coming up with what we think every artifacts aspect of culture is. For the art aspect we think that the pot and the paint are part of that aspect. Also we think (of course) that the rice, beans, sunflower seeds and the squash seeds are part of the food aspect of culture. The next aspect of culture is currency because we think that they could have been used to trade with\ for money. Also we think that possessions could be a aspect of culture because we found sea shells and they could have been used to collect. All these aspects are very important to civilizations because you use them in your everyday life.
