The Importance of Archaeology

From 'Britain BC - Life in Britain and Ireland before the Romans' by Francis Pryor:

I believe passionately that archaeology is vitally important.  Without an informed understanding of our origins and history, we will never place our personal and national lives in a true context.  And if we cannot do that, then we are prey to nationalist, fundamentalist and bigots of all sorts, who assert that their revelations or half-truths to which they subscribe are an integral part of human history.

Indeed.

Archaeology is an extremely amazing thing to me. I like everything about it. I actually want to become a great archaeologist when I get older.
