Historical Archaeology is the study of post-prehistoric cultures that uses physical remains, oral and historical sources, and a range
of multidisciplinary techniques to study the human condition. This field of
research embraces the interests of a diverse group of scholars representing the
disciplines of anthropology, history, geography, and folklore.The historical archeologist must rely on site maps, soil
profile drawings, and artifacts, as well as archival texts, records, maps, photographs,
oral histories and ethnographies.
