Archaeological theory building comprises the interpretation of archaeological research (from the initiation of site discovery to the results of laboratory analyses), theoretical models for the interpretation of finds and the understanding of human behavior, and the evolution of archaeological theory itself.
Also covered for their potential in theory development are a number of disciplinary specializations arising from the application of archaeological method beyond the domain of prehistory to classical and more recent historic periods.
