What is archaeology?

Archaeology is the study of past human societies, and it provides a unique perspective on what it is to be human.

As the only subject that addresses the entire human past in all its temporal and spatial dimensions, archaeology offers a vital perspective on how we shape our future.

Archaeologists utilize a wide range of different types of evidence – ancient tools, buildings, human remains and traces of past environments are all important.

Archaeology is truly interdisciplinary, using approaches and methods from the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences to gather, analyze and interpret evidence to reveal the rich tapestry of past human life.

As such archaeology is well placed to provide a long-term perspective on some of the ‘grand challenges’ of the 21st century, such as climate change, health, identity, equality and cultural diversity.
