Example:

 

Artifact

 

Archaeologists must act as detectives by putting together clues, such as bones and artifacts, to learn about the lives of prehistoric peoples.  Archaeologists must use artifacts, which may be tools or jewelry (human-made items), because there are no written records of the prehistoric peoples, who lived approximately 5,000 years ago.  Archeologists excavate bones and artifacts which provide clues to how the prehistoric peoples looked, worked, and worshipped.
