The social-cultural anthropology program at Rice has a distinguished legacy dating back to the 1980's when the department became a focal point and provocateur for a major reassessment of the methods of anthropological research and writing.
While there are a variety of scientific and other investigative techniques used to reconstruct the past based on this wealth of evidence, archaeological interpretations are constrained by issues of preservation.
Not everything discarded in the past will survive in the archaeological record, and thus there will always be gaps in our knowledge.

The main text is a coherent introduction to the whole field of science-based dating, written in plain langauge for non-scientists.
