Since we are already on this and in most countries Archeology (Archaeology) falls under anthro - can we subsume this completely under our CZ:Anthropology Workgroupworkgroup?

Maybe. You might ask if the two Archaeology Workgroup editors have any objection. I don't, personally. --Larry Sanger 13:04, 14 September 2007 (CDT)

I shall await their reply!

Structure

Thinking about how this article could developed, it needs a section on the history of archaeology (ie: how the study developed), archaeological techniques (including drawing, photography, geophysics, excavation, and dating), and the role of archaeology in historical studies.
