Archaeology and Palaeoecology

Archaeology and Palaeoecology

Archaeology examines evidence of past human activity from, for example, settlements, burials or artefacts. It involves investigating the economic and social patterns of the making and use of these, and the relationship of humans with the environment.

Palaeoecology studies evidence from animal and plant remains, and from soils and sediments, to reconstruct past human activity and environmental impact, changes in the natural environment and the timescales for these changes.
