Have you heard of Archeology before? When? What do Archaeologist do?


  • Archaeologist examine human and material remains from the past.

  • They record and map what they find.

  • This information is used to create history.

Why are we doing this?

  • It is important to think of past as something we can constantly interact with instead of some that simply is.

  • Interpretations of Archeological evidence has changed over the years due to the discovery of new contexts and the use of new technologies.

  • Humans are biased and the interpretation of archeological remains have been used to serve racist Eurocentric goals.

Lets practice together!

We are going to look at remains from Etruscans because they are my favorite Ancient Civilization.
