The DMS Wants to Know!



You guys dug up the right answer on Monday's Riddle, unearthing the topic of buried treasure. Lizzy then reviewed the new middle grade novel, Misfortune Cookie by Sara Linton, where a young girl receives an unfortunate message and is convinced that she has been cursed with bad luck. It's a hair raising archeological mystery that keeps you guessing from beginning to end. For Top of the Heap we shared two of our favorite finds and today, we want to hear from you! ~ F

    1. Hi Shauna, I actually feel more comfortable in life when I'm surrounded by Medieval stuff, and I'm a big fan of the renaissance fair in Tuxedo NY. It's a really authentic, fun trip. You can watch a queen play a game of human chess game, listen to Robin Hood and his merry men tell their tale, then walk to the other side of the woods and enjoy a good joust. It's a great time! ~ F

  4. I would have picked the Dead Sea Scrolls too. Silly as this sounds, I love finding fossils and arrowheads. I think someday there'll be a major find in one of these that will change the way we look at history.

  7. I'm mildly obsessed with Sumer, Ancient Mesopotamia. Fascinates me beyond belief. Thanks for stopping by, Fairday. It's great to meet you. Returned the follow. My gmail is hated for some reason, so I had to resort to following via Twitter. Sigh.

  9. New research into how the Egyptians were mummified always fascinates me. I can remember feeling all yukky when as a girl I heard how the brain was removed via the nostrils of the dead - something archeologists are now questioning.

    1. Petty- Mummification is an interesting process. I think because it seems so gross it sticks in everyone's mind. I love that as archeologists learn more they revisit their beliefs about what happened. ~F

  10. I think the find of the first human remains is fascinating. I think it was in Egypt, but I am not sure. It is so cool to think about the people that lived long ago.

    1. Trey- Finding the first human remains was a big dig! Imagine what that felt like? I like to think about the way that early humans were similar to me and different. ~F

  11. I find this whole subject fascinating. I love the History Channel. I like dinosaurs a lot- so I would say anything that has to do with that.
