Children of the Past: Archaeology and the Lives of Kids

Footprints on cave floors. Fingerprints on clay pots. A tiny horse made from lead. These are all clues about the lives of kids long ago. Archaeologist Lois Miner Huey pieces together these clues to show readers how children's lives differed throughout time. She examines cave-roaming kids in Western Europe in 18,000 BCE; hunter-gatherer kids in Europe in 6,000 BCE; Iroquois kids in North America in 1,000 CE; colonial kids in Jamestown, Virginia, in the early 1600s; and free African American kids in Fort Mose, Florida, in the mid-1700s.
