The second edition of "Digging and Discovery: Wisconsin Archaeology" engages students in exploring Wisconsin's distant and not-so-distant past as they learn archaeologists' methods of uncovering the history of the many generations of Native and non-Native peoples who have populated our state. In addition to methodology, the eight chapters detail lifeways of pre-contact Indian cultures--Paleo-, Archaic, and Woodland-era groups--and rock art. The middle chapters emphasize people and communities of the last three centuries--remnants of the fur trade, mining, lumber boom, and agricultural eras--and a final chapter introduces students to the concept of cultural stewardship in protecting our rich archaeological heritage. This edition has more color, more maps, and more features, such as a glossary and index. The original teacher's guide will continue to serve as the companion piece. Diane Holliday and Bobbie Malone, who co-authored the first edition, have collaborated on the new edition as well.
