( AR·chae·ol·o·gy) also archeology ( AR·che·ol·o·gy). A core subfield of anthropology dedicated to the scientific study of the life and cultures of ancient peoples through excavation of their material culture. The Latin equivalent archaeologia gave rise to the English word archaeology. Restated in procedural terms archaeology consists of the systematic recovery of the surviving remains of ancient peoples in an effort to reconstruct their cultural history. The goal of archaeological endeavor is the recovery, classification, and description of the durable remnant of human activities of antiquity to expand the knowledge of the present about the past.

The scientific study of the physical remains of ancient human cultures and the art of interpreting their significance.
the systematic study of the material remains of human behavior in the past. Archaeologists reconstruct the prehistory and early history of societies and their cultures through an examination and interpretation of such things as house foundations, broken tools, and food refuse.
The scientific study of past human lives and activities through material objects.
The science concerned with the recovery, analysis, description and explanation of the remains of past human cultures.
The study of past human activity based primarily on the recovery, analysis, and description of physical evidence. Although ethnographic and oral histories are used in archaeology, emphasis is on information retrieved from excavations and surveys.
the branch of anthropology that studies prehistoric people and their cultures
an innovative and hands-on method of teaching objectives in all subject areas, especially social studies
(also Archeology) The scientific study of PHYSICAL evidence of past human societies recovered through excavation.

The Archaeology Section meets every Thursday at 8.00 pm. The Section's work consists largely of post-excavation work processing the finds from various local digs with which the Section or the Société are involved. Although often unglamorous, this work is the essential background and support needed by visiting professional archaeologists and the Section itself on rescue excavations. Interspersed between work meetings are talks and lectures by local archaeologists and, when possible, by visiting colleagues. In the summer months evening outings are organised to topical or theme sites. Excavation is only part of the Section's work. Members are encouraged in their own research, guidance and assistance is on hand as are the resources of the Section's specialist library.
the study of past human cultures, largely done through the material remains found preserved in former sites.
The scientific study of the remains of past human life and activities. A person who studies archaeology is called an archaeologist.
study of past cultures primarily through the study of material culture (sites and artifacts)
the study of material remains left by humans, usually in the ground, to learn about past cultures. Archaeology is often confused with paleontology. They differ in that archaeology is the study of human life in the past, and paleontology is the study of plant and animal life in the past (such as dinosaurs).
Scientific studies of historic peoples through their artifacts, skeletal remains, fossils and objects of human workmanship.
n. The branch of anthropology concerned with the systematic investigation of the relics of man.
The scientific recovery and interpretation of the material remains of mankind's past. Written records may supplement this process, but its techniques are principally concerned with non-literary evidence for revealing mankind's social and cultural development.
The scientific study of past human life and change through analysis of material remains that humans have left behind (from the Greek root archaeo, meaning ancient and logos, meaning study)
the study of the physical remains of human settlement. artifact- an object produced or shaped by human craft, especially a tool, weapon, or ornament of archaeological or historical interest. burials- location of graves and the artifacts found in and around them. cache- a hiding place used mainly for storing food and valuables of ancient cultures.
The study of evidence for our human past, usually by excavation.
The study of humanity's past, primarily through the study of the material (physical) remains of past human activity.
