Archaeology is the study of the past of human culture. This is done by the careful recovery of things that ancient people have left behind, such as bones, buildings, ships, and tombs. Finds can range from spectacular and priceless treasure and art, to more everyday things like pottery, clothing, and tools. In fact, some of the best archaeological sites are where ancient people threw out their trash!
