History begins with humanity, human evolution tells everything. It must be hard with live unknowing the past. Right? The society,nations and all the people that brings together the same past time. They can growing in this way and share the common things you will create the our future. For all this, you need to research and understand the history in the best way. This happens with Archeology.
This open with the excavation and put the like similar part of puzzle. Because the material used by a society is the most important documents that give us information about that people. Even if it is a very small part, every finding is very important. And what is most important here is how we provide the transfer of objects to us? Techniques and methods used in the analysis are very important.
Not only archeology, but also other branches of science should benefit here. For example ; Archaeometry, Numismatic, Anthropology, Archeobotany, Ancient Architecture of History. There are many side branches and definitions that I can talk about archeology, so illegal excavations are of interest to all the branches as well as the history for us. Antique cities, unprotected the historical artifacts, built next to site areas and so on.
It is an eye-catching mistake that is at the root of many troubles that have reached as far as the sun. Research shows that more archeological excavations are needed to prevent illegal excavations. For this, the material investments from the state are very important. Even today, seeing at the science of excavation as a treasure hunter.
We will remember that historical artifacts are and more important than gold or silver in case of damage, but unfortunately we are too late for it. It is not enough for guardians to protect the ruins. Archeology education given at universities and institutes is of poor of quality. Both of the teachers also students. Because there isn’t enough the number of professer at universty.
Sceince is dead our place. Not only this habibat. All over the World same. Graduating from the faculty of science and literature is highly valued, but the fact that the state is not interested enough and trying to attract extraordinary science has led to disinterest in people.
We have entered into a vicious circle because the excavations have been carried out for a long time and the excavations have been carried out halfway and the restoration excavations which will provide protection, which is the most important step afterwards, have failed.
We have come to this situation because we have become almost impossible to protect what we have not been able to take, and we can not know the value of this beautiful past geography we live in. There is something we should not forget that it is the history and science that will shape the future best.
