Archaeology is all about questions – and trying to find answers!
The types of questions that archaeologists try to answer include:
- What was this ditch for?;
- How old is this building?;
- What did people living in this area eat in the past?; and
- What was this object for?
Answering archaeological questions can be very difficult; it’s a bit like trying to do a jigsaw puzzle without all the pieces and without a picture of what the finished jigsaw should look like!
