Archaeology is the science that studies human cultures through the recovery, documentation, analysis, and interpretation of material remains and environmental data, including architecture, artifacts, features, biofacts, and landscapes.

Across the galaxy, over the course of billions of years, highly advanced civilizations have risen and then fallen into ruin, which means that exo-archaeology, unlike archaeology on any single planet, can often locate knowledge and technology far in advance of contemporary levels. This makes interstellar archeology a potent means to advance scientific, technical and medical understanding.

Some goals of Archaeology include the documentation and explanation of the origins and development of human cultures, understanding culture history, chronicling cultural evolution, and studying human behavior and ecology, for both prehistoric and historic societies.

23rd century Starfleet vessels often included an A&A officer (Archaeology & Anthropology) before more capacity increases allowed for more specialized crew to be assigned to starships.
