Introduction: A Science and Its Concepts

This section presents a few notions and concepts that make it easier to understand the way scientific process is applied in archaeology and how it results in archaeological interpretation.

The concepts presented here include the distinction between prehistory and history, the peopling of the territory of present-day Quebec and the contribution made by other sciences to archaeology in the task of reconstructing humanity’s past.
