Classical Archaeology is the study of past societies in the Mediterranean region on the basis of surviving material evidence.
Oftentimes classical archaeology is extended to the area of the Near East, especially to the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Syria, and Egypt, and what is often called "Biblical Archaeology" (the archaeology of "Bible Lands" has close connections with Classical Archaeology).
