The purpose of archaeology is always the same: the study of human society, both past and present, through the material culture it has left behind. The first archaeologists were treasure hunters, collectors and oftentimes dreamers, whose interest in ancient art and architecture lay solely in the beauty and aesthetics of these objects. Over time, artefacts were increasingly catalogued and ordered typologically and chronologically. Issue 17 of PCP Forum takes a closer look at various fields of archaeology and the important contribution they make to cultural property protection.
