|Archaeology is the study of
earlier cultures by anthropologists who specialize in the scientific recovery,
analysis, and interpretation of the material remains of past societies.
Much of archaeology focuses on the time before the advent of writing (prehistory),
but archaeological work is also done by historic archaeologists who work
with complex societies that have left written records.
||Archaeologists, like all
anthropologists, are concerned with culture, but the sources of
information for archaeologists are not living people.
Archeologists use the material culture -the things people made,
used, altered, and then left behind- to study the artifacts left
behind and use it to study the people who left them behind.
The life of Anthropologist
does not have to be limited
to teaching or digging in the dirt.
