All About Archaelology
Anne Terry White, Tom O'Sullivan
Of all the sciences archaeology is perhaps the most appealing. For archaeologists are in fact detectives, and we all have something of the detective in us. We like to work out puzzles and solve mysteries - which is what archaeologists do. They find clues and follow them, then reconstruct what happened and try to interpret its meaning. They try to find out the way our ancestors lived - how they got their food and built their houses and worked and fought. They try to learn about their skills, their trade, their travels, their fun. Above all, they want to get at the mind and spirit of Man. What did our dead-and-gone ancestors believe? What did the feel? What did they imagine?
