Abstract

Did you ever see a television program on archaeology and think, that is interesting, and I wonder how I could experience archaeology? Archaeology fascinates us; it can spark wonder, delight, surprise, and reflection. Many of us have a natural curios ...view middle of the document...

While some archeologists surely go on various adventures, most of the excitement revolves around the discovery of artifacts or remnants of societies of old. Each discovery serves as a clue in which the archeologist joins together each piece with the hope of being able to see the picture as a whole. However, searching for these pieces may not come from dangerous expeditions like "Indiana Jones" depicts, but may come in the form of time consuming digs that may seem to be mundane and in reality will look like this". We should probably get started with an explanation of what archeology is (Hayden, Broyles & Boyer 100-101).

Archaeology can be used as a thematic topic to teach subjects from Art to Zoology. Archaeology can be used to draw connections between the real world and mathematics using geometry, statistical analysis, measurement, and/or problem solving; teach ethics and civics; through student-initiated research on historic preservation laws that protect our nation's endangered and irreplaceable archaeological sites; formulate and test scientific hypotheses using classroom based activities that focus on gathering and analyzing archaeological data; bring American history alive in your classroom using recent archaeological discoveries combined with documented histories from Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, Valley Forge, or Monticello. There are no written records of the cultures of ancient North American people. For us to arrive at a perception of what encountered here before Raleigh, Columbus, Coronado and we rely on clues left behind by these early Americans in the leftovers of their villages, monuments, and artifacts. When they collect these artifacts, they keep the items together from each area in which they were collected so they can correctly learn about these people. And because all people throughout history have made artifacts and left them behind, so an archeologist's work can never do! The area where an archeologist looks for his artifacts is called a site. A site is any place where people have lived or rested for any period of time and left something behind. Sites can be very big with many artifacts, or very small with only a few artifacts (Holloway, 350-351).

Some artifacts last for a long time. But unfortunately some things do not last as long. For example, carved stones will probably last longest whereas things like shells, bones, wooden items, or food will decay easily. This is because nature preserves things differently. Archeologists know this, and also must understand preservation when they look at artifacts. There is not one single study of archeology, but rather a few components that make up archeology as a whole. These are: Historic Archeology" the study of archeological sites that date to recent historic times (Jack et al, 300-301).

Some historic archeological sites include house sites (like foundations and cellars), farm sites, manufacturing sites, military sites, historic trash pi...
