REVIEW:
This page is really is part of The Smithsonian Institute's FAQs, but it really provides valuable educational information on the topics covered. Anthropology, Sciences, Textiles, Zoology... there are others too, but the list is not comprehensive and relates to those most sent in requests for information. Learn about the Stratavarious Violin, or discover what career paths one might take in the field of archaeology... Interesting tid-bits you may want to point your students to for a little variety and fun.
