How does archaeology teach us about the past?


Wiki User

archaeology teaches us about the past by showing us the remains of past organisms and by studying them you can see how certain things were such as evolution food and other things like their age
It helps us build a picture about a specific civilization; it tells us how those people lived, what they ate, who they traded with; what things they liked, if they were warriors or peaceful, cultivated people, if their civilization ended in war, fire, pillage or because of a natural catastrophe, or they mysteriously abandoned their town/village, if they were healthy, at what age did they generally die, what they believed in, etc.
