What is Archaeology?

What is Archaeology?

Archaeology is the understanding of humankind. It is a humanistic dicipline. it is concerned with the full- range of past human experiences. It is a subdiscipline of
Anthropology. It is both a physical activity and an intellectual pursuit.
Archaeology is concerned about the study of artfacts.

A question that has many in the field of Anthropology and Archaeology concerned with is:
Who owns, or should own the past?

Archaeologists use the terms "BP" and "years ago' interchangeably, since a difference of 50 years or so between them is irrelevant.

Tree Ring Dating. It was developed by an American astronomer A.E. Douglass.

23rd Psalm for the Student

The Lord is my real instructor and I shall not want.

He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me.

He gently reminds me to to pray before I speak and to do all things without murmuring and complaining.

He reminds me that He is my Salvation and not my school.

He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions that I might honor Him in everything I do.

Even though I face absurd amoounts of homework, quizzes, tests, unrealistic deadlines, shortages of funds, gossiping students, discriminating teachers and a sleep - deprived body that does not cooperate every morning, i will not stop - for He is with me!

His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through.

He raises me up, even when they fail to give me good grades.

He claims me as His own, even when the class threatens to flunk me.

His faithfulness and love are better than any A+.

His eternal reward beats every degree there is.

When it is all said and done, I will be working for Him a whole lot longer than I will be in school ( even when it does not feel like it) and for that I bless His Name!

Spirit Life

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord.
