Play the role of archaeologist as you explore this pyramid model and the treasures buried within!

After using hieroglyphics to decipher the secret to unlocking the pyramid, use tools and techniques similar to those of a real archaeologist to carefully excavate a sarcophagus and four canopic urns from the hardened sandy catacomb inside. Practice the best techniques for excavating an archaeological site, such as digging, troweling, screening, brushing, and record keeping.

As you uncover the artifacts in the pyramid, you will learn about important aspects of archaeological science, including surveys, excavation, conservation, dating, and remote sensing.

Learn how to create a gridded excavation site and a diorama. Investigate the layout of the pyramid, its various chambers, hidden passageways, and security devices by constructing a three-dimensional cross section of the pyramid.

    First Christmas gift put to use

    Our 9-year-old daughter couldn't wait to dig into this. She enjoyed solving the mysteries and finding the treasures inside.

    Pretty good - fun is over quickly though...
    Posted 1/2/2013 by Kim Jonsson

    I'll preface this by saying that the child I bought this for is a few years younger than the recommended age... The best part of this product is, of course, digging in the pyramid. There is also a book of experiments and other things you can do, which we are and will likely do over time, but the biggest feature is the dig, and I thought that was a little too easy, and was over a little too quickly. It would be nice to have to put a little more effort into it. In any case, my daughter LOVED digging in the pyramid, and proudly displayed her treasures. For that alone, this is worth it.
