What is Archaeology?
Archaeology is the study of human society, primarily through the recovery and analysis of thematerial culture and environmental data that they have left behind, which includes artifacts,architecture, biofacts and cultural landscapes (the archaeologicalrecord). Because archaeology employs a wide range of different procedures, it can be considered to be a study of both science andhumanity, and in the United States it is thought of as a branch of anthropology, although in Europe it is viewed as a separate discipline.
