Archaeology is the scientific study of human material remains. It covers people from prehistory through the world today. Archaeologists reconstruct human lifestyles, explore questions and theories about humans and culture, and contribute to the management of cultural resources. At Eastern Kentucky University, students may take archaeology courses that span the globe, work in an archaeology laboratory, and learn archaeological methods by participating in a field school.
