Archaeology is the scientific study of the material remains of past human life and activities and how they relate to our behaviour and the past environment through time.  It is a lens through which we study ourselves to understand how culture evolved in the past.  It is the single most powerful tool to understand and explain our entire human history.

Basically, archaeology asks whathow and when we did something in the past – and then asks why we did it.  To do this archaeology draws on many fields of science with more subtle questions regarding our behaviour  drawn from sociological, philosophical, psychological and historical fields.

Although the whole world has archaeological mysteries to be investigated, the TLHG has limited research to the Parish of Tintinhull plus a few relevant adjacent areas.  A compilation of our research and results can be found by clicking on the link here
