Abstract: Archaeology is a humanistic science. Man is the centre of its attention and all the various stages of its organization are aimed at a better understanding of man by unravelling his past. It is a science because it has developed a body of set rules which discipline its proceedings in order to produce as exact and truthful an interpretation of the available evidence as possible. The severity of its methods has been further strengthened in the last few decades through the application of techniques devised by the exact sciences, such as thermoluminescence and radiocarbon dating techniques.
