Archaeology and Anthropology are closely related and complementary disciplines that endeavour to explore human diversity in its many forms. Archaeology is the study of artifacts and other physical remains of earlier societies and communities in order to unravel the mysteries of human cultural variability and adaptation. Archaeologists can reconstruct past human behaviours and life ways from tools, shelters, ornaments, food remnants, modified landscapes, and even human remains. Anthropology seeks a broad comprehension of the human experience through time and space, and asks the most enduring question, "What does it mean to be human?" Anthropology draws connections from studies of our hominin ancestors, living primates, and early human populations, to contemporary social and cultural formations.
