Getting to Know Archaeology
What is Archaeology?
Archaeology is the study of the relationship between human behavior and material culture in any space and time.
Archeology is the study of how humans from various places in the past behaved through the material evidence they left behind.
Archaeology is a science that deals with the activity of discovering, systematically describing, and studying material culture from the past.
Why Study Archeology?
Archeology is very important because many people want to know and understand its origins. Studying archeology can satisfy the basic human need to know where we came from, why we have the culture we are today, and what the future of our humanity will look like.
Archaeologists study all aspects of human life in the past, buried underground and at the bottom of the sea, from food to their beliefs, the clothes and jewelry they wore, the utensils and cooking utensils they used, the houses they lived in and the way they remember their ancestors.
