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 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.
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."
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-C…hristian bible, including but not limited to the Dead Sea Scrolls. 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.
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...
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 int…epreter can translate for both of them.
someone that stranslate one language to another one so it can be understood by a or more persons.
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.
"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 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.

Interpreater translate the high level language into machine level language line by line
The aim of archaeology is to find and understand material remains of the past.
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).
