What is biblical archaeology?
Traditionally, biblical archaeology is the name given to the study of the archaeological aspects of the history of the Jewish and Christian churches as provided in the Judeo-Christian bible, including but not limited to the <A href="http://archaeology.about.com/od/biblicalarchaeology/ig/Dead-Sea-Scrolls/">Dead Sea Scrolls</A>. Near Eastern archaeology is the term that refers to the same region, but, since not all archaeology in the area is referred to in the Old or New Testament, covers a broader range of topics.

As a post grad student of archaeology and someone who has spent several years doing casual yet constant field work, I would have to say archaeology would be considered a relat…ively safe job. This depends on where and when you work. As we work in all environments from out back Australia to the Mexican Jungle. I have a teacher who was once kidnapped in South America by local towns folk as they did not understand he was a professor of archaeology, they thought he was a thief :)
It is an area which is slowly, carefully and methodically excavated under the supervision of one or more archaeologists. The goal is to find and preserve historical evidence o…f former inhabitants, societies and civilizations. Most areas of the Earth are slowly covered over by accumulated soil, so that it is necessary to dig down to find really old artifacts. An archaeologist is a scientist and historian who is trained in the location and interpretation of evidence confirming former human habitation.
Archaeology is the study of material remains related to the human past. Such remains include monumental structures such as the pyramids of Egypt, to microscopic plant frag…ments retrieved from ancient soils. Archaeological research is undertaken on recent historical remains to supplement the written record, or on the prehistoric evidence of human culture where no other record exists. Archaeological methods are applied everywhere in the world where people have left remains behind, which for all practical purposes is anywhere on earth. From the buildings and other cultural artifacts left behind by the first Antarctic expeditions, to fossilized remains revealing the earliest human origins in Africa, archaeology provides a window into man's cultural past. Archaeology is also the study of past human populations, their lifestyle and their culture through material remains. The official definition for the word "archaeology" is "the study of human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains."
Archaeologists study artifacts the past to develop a picture of how people lived in earlier cultures and societies.Also Old bones and rocks
Not all words have true antonyms. In fact, most don't. Archaeologyis one of them. You could choose any of a number of words orphrases depending on what part of archaeology you… want to negate.
Archaeology is the study of the past, particularly people, by looking at their material remains (skeletons, pottery, settlements etc). It is not fossils, it involves humans. …Before humans (hominins) is palaeoanthropology, and before that is palaeontology. Archaeology is a sub topic of anthropology. Anthropology is the study of every aspect of humans, past-future. Archaeology mainly focuses on the past. It does in fact involve fossils. Because anthropologists believe in some sort of evolution, fossils of hominids, primates and any animal a hominid may have come in contact with (eaten) are studied. Archaeologists also study artifacts which is any human made object. Another spelling of archaeology is archeology, but that is a less used spelling...
Archaeology is the study of the past based on material remains. In the past, meaning history. So the history in archaeology is about studying ancient bones, rubbish, house rem…ains, weapons, and other things.
Archaeological anthropology (more simply, "archaeology") reconstructs, describes, and interprets human behavior and cultural patterns through material remains. P…lant and animal remains and ancient garbage tell stories about consumption and activities.
make a complete reconstruction of a period determined detected material in a cultural layer and then follow the scientific work of site that exploits I think the final go…al it to recover the buried history.
Archaeology involves a variety of activities and many of these do require maths although to varrying degrees. The most important area is probably statistics as this… is essential to interpreting and representing any form of data that you obtain as an archaeologist. There are also various specialized areas within archaeology that involve very complex mathematical calculations, such as in the area of dating.
That religious people don't interfere with the dating and explanation of archeological findings and archaeologists don't preach to religious people how they know better.… The two groups will never agree and it is pointless to try from either viewpoint.
The aim of archaeology is to find and understand material remains of the past.
Are there any extra-biblical Archaeological or Historical evidences that the Israelites were once slaves in Egypt?
It is possible, but unlikely that some Israelites were enslaved by the Egyptians at sometime during the middle of the second millennium BCE. However, there is no extra-bib…lical evidence, either archaeological or historical, for any such event. The leading Israeli archaeologist, Israel Finkelstein said, "Today more than 90% of scholars agree that there was no Exodus from Egypt".
When a construction project is planned, the area first needs to be surveyed in case there is something there of archaeological importance that would be destroyed. These survey…s and excavations are a legal requirement and are carried out by commercial archaeologists. So a commercial archaeologists are teams who have make their living by being hired by building companies, to excavate an area before construction starts. Projects run by commercial archaeologists are normally very pressed for time because constraints placed by planned construction work, and so they may not be to as high a standard as other, research led projects. Even if something of interest is found it is unlikely that they will be able to extend the excavation to investigate further. Commercial Projects may be more inclined to cut corners, and staff may be paid less as project managers try to cut costs, in an effort to undercut quotes given by competitors. (The project who gives the lowest quote is more likely to be given a contract/hired by the construction company).
