RECONSTRUCTING ANCIENT CULTURES AND ENVIRONMENTS

Environmental archaeology is the science of reconstructing the relationship between ancient peoples and the environments they lived in.

What trees, herbs, vegetables, and flowers did the ancients see around them (the study of archaeobotany)? Which animals lived nearby and which did they hunt or keep as pets (the study of zooarchaeology)? And where did they find clay for their pottery, grow their crops, or climb hills and dales (the study of geoarchaeology).
