Archaeology is the study of the ancient human past, a sub-field of anthropology. The field is concerned with human existence since the advent of culture.
Culture began at the point where humans made artifacts. Artifacts would become evidence to reveal the mysteries of often extinct cultures and societies. Current thinking in archaeology applies the lessons of the past to the present and to the future.
