Archaeological remains are a crucial link with the past, providing evidence of the development of human settlement over the centuries. Archaeology is the study of human societies through their physical remains – both above and below ground. These remains vary from upstanding and obvious sites such as castles and stone circles, to buried remains like Roman forts or medieval houses that are hidden below later buildings and fields.
