thinking about archaeology

A five-year-old’s view of arkeeolijee

The vision of an archaeologist excited by the discovery of a human skull as big as their spoilheap is somewhat undermined by the inscription which, if you can’t read primary school phonetics, reads: “Archaeologists dig for bones, and they have been doing that for a very long time. If you wonder what they do with the bones, don’t ask me because I don’t know”. This particular archaeologist goes completely awol as the printing deadline for British Archaeology careens towards him, so he deserves nothing less.
