Dear Division 16,
This article describes the work of amateur archaeologists “mudlarkers”, who look for artifacts from the past in their neighbourhoods.
If you would like to read more, the whole article can be found here.
For your post today, please answer one of the following questions:
1. Have you ever found an artifact in the city that told you something about the past? Describe it! What did it teach you? (Don’t choose this one if the answer is “no”)
2. What do you think should be done with these artifacts found by amateur archaeologists? Should they be donated to museums or universities, or should finders be keepers? Explain your thinking.
I look forward to your responses.
