  5. 5. What is the difference between an archeologists and anthropologists?<br />Dr Dig!<br />Technically, an anthropologist studies all aspects of humanity - physical (or biological), cultural, and archaeological. The archaeologist has a narrower field, and studies the past by recovering and analyzing artifacts and evidence of material culture. There is a great deal of overlap between the two disciplines. <br />
  6. 6. Maybe a simpler answer would be good!<br />An archaeologist digs up and studies man&apos;s past by examining the material remains of his cultures and what he did, while an anthropologist interprets these findings to find out what he thought and believed. <br />
  7. 7. Maybe a simpler answer would be good!<br />They are sometimes closely linked and can be blurred, but the main difference is that the archaeologist is concentrating on the physical evidence, while the anthropologist looks at the same evidence to discover how and why they believe whatever. <br />
  8. 8. Artifact:<br />Items MADE by humans from the past<br />EXAMPLES??<br />
