Archeology is the scientific study of past human culture and behavior, from the origins of humans to the present.
Archaeology studies past human behavior through the examination of material remains of previous human societies.
Hundreds of artifacts have been located and studied with some remarkable results.
However, archaeology is distinct from paleontology and studies only past human life.
The overall aim is to provide substantive summary volumes of the work of the project at intervals through the life of the project.

In archaeology, an artifact is an object recovered which may provide cultural interest and help in the understanding of human history.
In the last 100 years, a large collection of important archeological discoveries have been made.
Some of these artifacts have helped people understand the origins of life on Earth, while others have presented problems for scientists.
An out-of-place artifact is an object of historical, archaeological, or paleontological interest found in a very unusual or seemingly impossible context.
Archaeology is an important field of anthropology, which is the broad study of human culture and biology.
Archaeologists concentrate their studies on past societies and changes in those societies over extremely long periods of time.
