Ξ♥What Is Archeology?♥Ξ

welcome to my site

archeology, is the
study of human activity
in the past, primarily
through the recovery
and analysis of the
material culture and
environmental data
that they have left
behind, which includes
artifacts, architecture,
biofacts and cultural
landscapes (the
archaeological record).

employs a wide range
of different procedures,
it can be considered to
be both a science and a
humanity, and in the
United States it is
thought of as a branch
of anthropology,

human prehistory and
history from the
development of the
first stone tools in
eastern Africa 4 million

(Archaeology does not
include the discipline of
paleontology.) It is of
most importance for
learning about
prehistoric societies,
when there are no
written records for
historians to study,
making up over 99% of
total human history,
from the Paleolithic until
the advent of literacy in
any given society.
Archaeology has various
goals, which range from
studying human
evolution to cultural
evolution and
understanding culture
The discipline involves
surveying, excavation
and eventually analysis
of data collected to
learn more about the
past. In broad scope,
archaeology relies on
research. It draws upon
anthropology, history,
art history, classics,
