    As a kid, I had many backyard archaeological adventures, that in my childhood mind rivaled the excitement of the most recent Indiana Jones movie Fortunately, my love of archaeology was than just a passing boyhood fascination It is an interest and passion that has stuck with me all the way into adulthood Being somewhat of a self proclaimed Bible nerd, archaeology of the Ancient Near East has always been a pet subject As a homeschooling father, I have been searching for age appropriate resources to introduce my children to the exciting history and archaeology of the peoples of the Ancient Near East Unfortunately my college archaeology textbooks just won t do as they are way too wordy for my 8 year old and don t have nearly enough pictures let alone color pictures for my 5 year old For some time now, I have been on the lookout for a book with engaging color pictures, maps and drawings as well as biblically relevant content that is accessible for a broad range of age groups The Archaeology Book published by Master Books is exactly the type of resource I have been looking for.The Archaeology Book is the latest addition to the Wonders of Creation series One distinct enhancement in this book over previous books...
