When April Jones Prince was in first grade, she decided she wanted to be an archaeologist. "I envisioned myself digging up precious historical artifacts and living in a palace," she says. "Obviously, I didn't know much about the accommodations of archaeologists in the field!" She did know that she was curious about the details of the past--what people did, ate, and wore. "I grew up fascinated by these things. My mom is a costume historian and my dad is practically a walking history book, so maybe it was inevitable."
