Archeology

Inside Archeology

Archeology involves the study of human history, generally through the excavation and analysis of artifacts that past civilizations have left behind. By recovering and examining materials such as tools, pottery, building ruins and other objects, archeologists can learn a lot about the cultures and living conditions of earlier societies.

Archeology can be an interesting and exciting field for individuals who are independent, passionate about history and have excellent written communication skills. Aspiring archeologists should also be interested in traveling to remote areas and living among different societies. They must be willing to work under strenuous conditions, including extreme weather.
