As a child I was always going to grow up and become a famous archaeologist (I never made it - I am actually a psychologist). My young daughter is similarly interested, and this is a great book for someone "starting out" with an interest in ancient times. It looks at all of the famous sites in archaeology, as well as the different eras. In addition it looks at themes as recent as the study of the industrial era, showing that archaeology is not just ancient bones and bits of pottery. For those who want more detail it is probably a little sketchy, but for the average household it is an excellent reference book.
