Usage of New Methods on Education and Culture in Archaeology

Archaeology is among others fields that can use of different sciences for cultural description which discover unknown past generation life. Most of the methods as excavation in archaeology which before were taught, were not completely,so this old methods cause to lose a lots of information that are important for getting result. Usage of new technology in teaching canhelp archaeologist to find culture of ancestor better than before and also it has useful effect on higher education .In this paper has been considered the effect of new technology instead of old methods in archaeology teaching at higher education by experimental result. This new methods including teach to use of Remote Sensing Technology, photo satellite and photo map. The research has shown that mentioned methods cause to expand cultural area and make easy to find archaeology surrounding and on the other hand to give rise to student become familiar with new technology also relation between archaeology and the other science.

 

By this methods archaeologist and students can save there information which are lost before.

PLoS ONE: Paleoamerican Diet, Migration and Morphology in Brazil: Archaeological Complexity of the Earliest Americans

PLoS ONE: Paleoamerican Diet, Migration and Morphology in Brazil: Archaeological Complexity of the Earliest Americans | Archaeology Articles and Books | Scoop.it
During the early Holocene two main paleoamerican cultures thrived in Brazil: the Tradição Nordeste in the semi-desertic Sertão and the Tradição Itaparica in the high plains of the Planalto Central. Here we report on paleodietary singals of a Paleoamerican found in a third Brazilian ecological setting – a riverine shellmound, or sambaqui, located in the Atlantic forest. Most sambaquis are found along the coast. The peoples associated with them subsisted on marine resources. We are reporting a different situation from the oldest recorded riverine sambaqui, called Capelinha. Capelinha is a relatively small sambaqui established along a river 60 km from the Atlantic Ocean coast. It contained the well-preserved remains of a Paleoamerican known as Luzio dated to 9,945±235 years ago; the oldest sambaqui dweller so far. Luzio's bones were remarkably well preserved and allowed for stable isotopic analysis of diet. Although artifacts found at this riverine site show connections with the Atlantic coast, we show that he represents a population that was dependent on inland resources as opposed to marine coastal resources. After comparing Luzio's paleodietary data with that of other extant and prehistoric groups, we discuss where his group could have come from, if terrestrial diet persisted in riverine sambaquis and how Luzio fits within the discussion of the replacement of paleamerican by amerindian morphology. This study adds to the evidence that shows a greater complexity in the prehistory of the colonization of and the adaptations to the New World.
