Florida Public Archaeology Network - Material Culture

fl-public-archaeology-network-logoArchaeology is the study of human beings through the artifacts left behind by past people.

These physical objects and architecture can express a great deal of information about the cultures they represent. Learn to think about how and why people from all over the world and throughout time have expressed themselves through signs, symbols, and material culture. A Florida Public Archaeology Network Program. Presented by Nigel Rudolph.
