Cargoes From Three Continents
Cargoes from Three Continents is a new education publication
from the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA). It presents lesson
plans and teacher resources derived from the l997 Summer Institute of
this name held in Boston (AIA headquarters) and underwritten by the National
Endowment for the Humanities. The aim of the Institute was to enrich the
precollege curriculum by showing the importance of archaeology in reconstructing
the past, to get away from the "spotlight" method of presenting history
by demonstrating the interconnectedness of ancient cultures.
The innovative materials in this over 200-page book with
handy maps and drawings come from sixteen Social Studies teachers, three
Latin teachers, and one teacher who conducts in-service workshops combining
history and science. Also included are the Institute's detailed lecture
schedule (a who's who of distinguished archaeologists and ancient historians
participated), syllabus, and bibliography.
