Archaeology is an efficient teaching tool because its multi-disciplinary
approach enables focused efforts. It can teach thinking skills, problem solving,
and it enhances cooperative learning. It is also an excellent way to promote
cultural awareness, which leads to an understanding of multicultural societies.
Studying the past allows one to study and project the consequences of human
behavior and decision making. For the most part, archaeologists work in
teams with other archaeologists or with archaeology students. Archaeologists may
be employed by a university, museum, governments, or commercial operations. An
archaeologist is much like a detective, in that they both investigate clues to
look for answers. An archaeologist looks for clues to learn how past peoples
lived, so that we can understand more about how present peoples live. The
resources you find here cover everything from field work, to lab work and
getting artifacts ready for public presentation.
Anthropology is the study of human culture and its many forms in different
societies both past and present. It tracks the evolution of culture far beyond
its primate origins Anthropology covers over two million years of prehistory, to
historical and contemporary societies. There are two broad areas of Anthropology
: archaeology (which has its own heading here) and social anthropology. Students
who are interested in any discipline in sociology should consider taking some
anthropology courses. Here you will find a variety of resources in many
individual pages dealing with various religions contain links to sites which

parties. You will find no sites where one faith attacks another.
Here, each religious faith speaks only for itself. However, because of the
nature of the subject, there may be some controversial material which slips
through as 'comparative' statements in order to more fully explain a belief
system in contrast to another system.
Because it answers two needs for us. It is one, enjoyable, and two, it is
useful. The history of ancient societies, which are seemingly alien and yet
strangely familiar, is a wonder. Who has not wanted to learn about ancient times
or from them?
Ancient history is increasingly seen as a valuable foundation for
professional disciplines, in the combined undergraduate degree programs (e.g.
Law, Commerce, Science) and in the professional postgraduate degree programs
(e.g. Education, Medicine). It broadens perspectives, provides skills in
analysis, and interpretation which are sought by employers in the public and the
private sector. So take the time to gain these skills while you make the past
You will find resources here for Near Eastern, Greek, Roman, and other
histories at all levels. Since the reviews are quite brief and to the point, you
