What is interpretative archaeology?
Interpretative archaeology is one of the latest trends regarding Archaeological Theory (i.e. the way we view archaeological data, the methodology and theoretical background that affects our explanations and understanding... anyway it's complicated). Interpretativearchaeology is also known as Post-processual archaeology (i.e. Postmodern) but some might tend to separate them although boundaries between the two are vague. It is a trend that is "against" (actually) but also complementary to (as many leading archaeologists argue) to the previous trend, known as processual archaeology. It appeared in the late 80s - early 90s.

An interpreter , or a translator, is a person who translates different languages. For an example, if a Chinese person and an American person can't understand each other, an i…ntepreter can translate for both of them.
An interpreter is a computer program that executes the instructions written in a high level programming language. It can also preform the translation of a high level language …to equivalent machine level code. But unlike compiler, an interpreter will compile the code line by line, i.e. each line will be translated to machine level language.
A translater that is fluent in many languages. The charges
"Interpretation is a communication process, designed to reveal meanings and relationships of our cultural and natural heritage, through involvement with objects, artifacts, la…ndscapes and sites."
Archaeology is the study of material remains related to the humanpast. Such remains include monumental structures such as thepyramids of Egypt, to microscopic plant fragments …retrieved fromancient soils. Archaeological research is undertaken on recenthistorical remains to supplement the written record, or on theprehistoric evidence of human culture where no other record exists.Archaeological methods are applied everywhere in the world wherepeople have left remains behind, which for all practical purposesis anywhere on earth. From the buildings and other culturalartifacts left behind by the first Antarctic expeditions, tofossilized 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, theirlifestyle and their culture through material remains. The officialdefinition for the word "archaeology" is "the study of humanhistory and prehistory through the excavation of sites and theanalysis of artifacts and other physical remains."
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… remains, weapons, and other things.
Actually the word is miused. Interpreting usually means to translate what someoen else is saying into a language to be understood by someone of another tongue. However, the wo…rd really means to give your impression of what somepne else is saying and not 'translate' what they literally did say.
archaeologist (an anthropologist who studies prehistoric people and their culture) As long as humans have lived on earth they have left traces of their existence. Whatever …the deposit, it will tell those who excavate and research these remains something of the lives of the people who left them behind. This is archaeology. The range of sites studied and the enormous variations in the amount and complexity of the remains hav led to great specialization in the disciplins that exist today under the general umbrella of archaeology.

Interpreater translate the high level language into machine level language line by line
Language interpreting or interpretation is the intellectual activity of facilitating oral and sign-language communication, either simultaneously or consecutively, between two …or more users of different languages or interpret - make sense of; assign a meaning to; "What message do you see in this letter?"; "How do you interpret his behavior?"
someone that stranslate one language to another one so it can be understood by a or more persons.
In the movie "The Interpreter"? Nicole Kidman.
Of course it is! It tells us everything we know about the past!
Interpreting is taking an utterance in one language and changing it into an equally conceptual and culturally equivalent in another language. This differs from translating in …the sense that translating is something done with a written form of language. Interpreters work between two people. Translators work, most times, with documents.
Plenty. To discover the buried history. They uncover history.
