Watch Right Now! Archeologists Joy & Kate
“Stories, both real and imagined, show what girls can do. The stories of women’s lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience.”

~National Women’s History Project

“What most people think about when they think of archeologists is going out in the field and digging things up and finding bones and pots and things like that. And that’s certainly a big part of what goes into archeology. But probably the bigger part, and the more important part is being able to explain what those bits and pieces actually mean.” ~ Joy
