Archaelogy is the study of human history and prehistory. The object that surrounds us today, bland or boring as they may seem have been shaped through hundreds of years of design. A button, plastic spoon or paper bag is as important to our history as an ancient statue., clay pot or skeleton. It is important that humans take time to appreciate the present, learning from everything around us in the moment rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Only then can we understand our place in the world and start to solve more problems.
