Archeology is the main method available for learning about the history of civilizations. It can unveil a rich store of information about the beliefs, social structure, economic organization and environmental effects of past societies. The word archeology is derived from two Greek words ‘archaios’ which means ancient things and ‘logos’ which means theory of science. Archaeology was first put to use by the Romans in the eighteenth century but it was given more accuracy by Heinrich Schliemann who brought to light the origins of Greek civilization.
