As Zahi Hawass, whom my daughter and I met in person in 1997 when we were invited over to return a small statue of Imhotep that had been passed down through the family since the Battle of the Nile, said " We have only unearthed less than one third of the history of this land, the rest is still hidden under the sands, waiting for us to find it."

About ten years ago, I had my high school science students use chipped stone flakes to scrape and cut different types of leather. We then took the chopped stone pieces up to Las Alamos Labs to the scanning electron microscope. The operator took micrograph pictures of the use wear found on the leading edges on each piece of chipped stone pieces. They went back and put together a Science Fair project and explanation of the digital images. It was a fun project and reflected experiments that were run on artifacts that I found when I was an archaeologist.

Very clever. Almost wish I could go back to high school to Learn what is being taught now!

I tend to like projects to supplement my standard curriculum ( not replace, supplement). Being a scientist before a teacher I have been lucky enough to introduce some real world science into many of my classes.
