Archaeology

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Archaeology.

Archaeology recovers remnants of human life in order to piece together a coherent picture of the past. Through the examination of tacit and ambient remains of past societies, archaeologists construct whole chronologies that explain how and why present societies developed in particular ways. Archaeological studies are not just archival, however. The information that archaeologists gather about survival in past civilizations has influenced ideas on current environmental and policy issues. Archaeologists are also involved in movements to preserve historical artifacts and landmarks for public access.
