How did the study of archaeology begin?

This is a good guide: http://pb-archaeology.blogspot.com/2008/04/how-did-archaeology-start-as-field-of.html

However archaeology as a "profession" began much later after an increased interest in the Victorian times.

It is only very recently that more and more rules are being put in place to protect artifacts of the past.

Can you ride a 50cc Moped with two below knee prosthetics legs if you can walk fine?

I don't know what a 50cc moped is, but with two bk prosthetic (not prosthetics) legs, you can do just about anything you fancy, icesskating piruettes for instance, but if you walk fine you should be prepared to pay the fine.

I woould appreciate a discussion on prosthetics.

The Australopithecine were very much like Homo sapiens. Most of the time they traveled in groups. They were social, friendly ape-like humans. Their shelter was the nature around them, for example trees, rocks and cliffs. The Australopithecine created 2 other homo- species that evolved even more.
