Whether on land or under water, archeology uncovers places where people made history. Archeology is a place-based science, meaning that each archeological site tells a unique story about its location. These stories may relate to the impacts of people on their environments, as well as environments on people: influencing where they settled, grew food, mined, and traveled.
