Because no hominid remains were found in association with the tools and they predate the oldest known remains of the genus Homo (see ARCHAEOLOGY, January/February 1997), the find has left the identity of the makers open to speculation. Semaw and his team will return to the field later this year in hopes of answering this question.

Archaeology is a fascinating science for kids. The earlier they get their hands in the dirt, the greater their fascination with archaeology and history will be. There are many tools used by archaeologists for digging and finding buried objects. Although some are very expensive and even dangerous for children to handle, other basic tools will provide hours of interesting, safe work for your kids.
