Young Archaelogist Shows Off Tools of the Trade

In this episode of Smart Girls at the Party, an online network that encourages girl empowerment, actress Amy Poehler interviews Anna, a 16-year-old who works on archaeological digs and has a healthy interest in ancient Egypt. Anna shows us around an archaeological site she's currently helping out on, and explains what skills are necessary to find and preserve history.

From Indiana Jones to Jurassic Park, archaeology may seem like a job straight out of the movies. However, some people look to make real-life careers out of excavating human history.
