About Archaeology

Archaeology is the study of the human past through the analysis of the material remains left behind by past societies. An archaeologist uses evidence left behind by earlier civilizations to gather information about human history and pre-history. The archaeologist excavates, recovers and analyzes artefacts including tools, cave paintings, building ruins, pottery and skeletons. They teach, conduct field investigations, analyze artefacts and sites, and publish the results of their research. Archaeologists can find work in cultural resource management institutions, universities, colleges, museums, the government, in private companies, and work as consultants.
