Your Opinions On Archaeology

  1. May 31, 2012 #1
    Archaeology is a bit of a clumsy tool when it comes proving historical facts. I believe that we can all agree with that.

    However, there are some people who are even more extremist in their views and want Archaeology to be of a much lower status.

    I am curious if you guys agree with the 2 quotes below?

    1. "Archaeology is only a supplement to History."

    2. "Archaeology is not only clumsy, it cannot be used to disprove historical textual evidence."

    Evo, I hope you plan on locking this thread when he can't provide any reputable source for such a statement.

    Yes, and actually, since I know he can't. Thread closed.
