Archaeology is a branch of science that deals with the study of the past artifacts and how it played a role in the past civilization. While others do not have enough appreciation of it, it is important that we know why people are spending money in order to unearth the mystery of the past.
Although it is very cliché to hear, if we don’t know the past, we are bound to repeat it. That is why, the branch of science that deals with the past is very important because we can have a glimpse of how they lived their lives before and at the same time, the issues that they faced.
It is a very important part of studying the past civilization. It gives explanation on why we have the traditions we have now. It gives explanation on why we have the beliefs that we have now. By understanding our origin, we know the struggles they had to face in order to survive and now, we are granted a unique opportunity to foresee the same things so we won’t repeat them.
This might sound like some voodoo saying but it is the truth. By knowing our past, we also discover their wisdom and the things that they see in the future. We can also have a way of solving our own current mysteries the way they did before. That is why understanding their culture in the past will give us the capabilities to have a better perspective in the things that we are doing. It will give us a better realization on the decision process that we are subjected in the daily basis.
A lot can be learned the way civilizations survived in the past. And if we keep on ignoring those lessons, we are bound to commit the same mistakes. And instead of providing concrete solutions, we are bound to make it worse. That’s why knowledge of the past is the key.
