Description

Archaeologists have a variety of methods to examine the remains of plants, animals, soils and sediments to document past environments and reconstruct the lives of ancient people. Any attempt to reconstruction the environment, either on the local level or in a region, is greatly strengthened by using many lines of evidence for past environmental conditions.
