Explore the Mysteries of Ancient Egypt Issue Date: 01-19-1997

Cool Spots imageHow does a mummy become a mummy? Who was King Tut? Get the answers to these and other questions by exploring the Web sites on Ancient Egypt. First, meet Rosetta Stone at www.clevelandart.org/kids/egypt, your guide to an archeological adventure. You can "ask the mummy" for all kinds of facts about mummies and pyramids, print out cool Egyptian art, and even build your own pharaoh's mask! Then, to find out more about the most famous Egyptian King, check out www1.usa1.com/~madartis/ egypt/ egypt.html where you will find the Treasures of Tutankhamun. You'll see the golden treasures found in Tut's tomb and learn why Egypt's kings were buried with all their favorite furniture! And did you know that Ancient Egyptians didn't use letters? Instead, they wrote with pictures and symbols called hieroglyphs. You can learn hieroglyphics and use them to send secret messages to your friends at www1.torstar.com/ rom/egypt/ the hieroglyphs translator. Only you, your Web-wise friends and the ancient Egyptians will be able to read your secret message. (The second and third sites are no longer available.)

Beam Me Back to the Stone Age, Scotty Issue Date: 12-29-1996

Cool Spots imageWith a click of the mouse, you can send yourself to http://museums.ncl.ac.uk/flint/menu.html and head back to the Stone Age. Take the timeline link and read a scroll of Stone Age accomplishments to find how far back in history you've gone. Then imagine a time when large ice sheets covered the land and the sea. In order to survive, you had to hunt for game and gather fruits and berries along with the herds of animals your tribe followed. Do you think you would make a good gatherer of food? Which berries or mushrooms taste good and are nutritious? Beware, some of them are not safe to eat. Staying alive takes more wit than simply digging through the refrigerator for a snack. This site clubs the myth that Stone Age people were the dim-witted, hairy brutes we have been lead to believe.
