Replication

I study the technology of prehistory.  Because of this, I believe strongly in the benefits of experiential archaeology.  It gives perspective on a very deep level.  We can walk in the shoes of our ancestors, so to speak.

  1. Fascinating work. It applies to all of the world. My first job in Israel was working on the excavation of King Solomon’s southern fortress south of the Dead Sea.

  2. I agree with you (again 😊) experimental archaeology it’s the best way ! The use of taxonomies and other old classifications is often a sterile approach to the study of palaethnology, that reduces the life of our ancestors to a collection of numbered items in an anonymous showcase.
