Why Archaeology?

The history of societies becomes all the more interesting if you can make it tangible. In achieving this, Archaeology is an indispensable tool with which an archaeologist brings the past back to life. As an archaeologist, you reconstruct how people used to live and contribute to a better understanding of history. You study traces and objects found in the earth, from temples to food waste.

Archaeology is a broad and versatile discipline. During your studies you learn much about ancient cultures and archaeological research methods, but the studies also require some serious action. Excavating, for instance, is an essential part of the work.
