Excavate. Question. Reconstruct. Solve
Excavate the past in the Discovery section
Explore archaeological sites of Bihar! A scale model of the Telhara excavation site reveals the many layers of findings and how sites get buried under the earth.
Tools most used by archaeologists for surveying are displayed – such as the theodolite for measurements, a drone camera for aerial photography and a georadar that detects subterranean information.
How do we recreate the past? What will they find 300 years later if they dig up where we now live? Learn how the archaeologist pieces together evidence collected at sites to derive the age of a civilization and to give us a sense of times past.
A replica of an artefact dig is constructed for children to get on-site experiences and to see how an archaeologist works. Put together broken pieces from a dig to reconstruct old artefacts. Flip books and phonetic translations help you understand old scripts no longer in use.
