The history of archaeology does not necessarily include "Who, What, When, and Where?" Despite the common sense of beginning from details that are among the easiest to establish. many histories distort this groundwork in behalf of "scientific context. The result is a history biased in behalf of the persons or institutions of greatest power during the period of advance. Archaeologists often recognize the colleague that publicizes and gains acceptance for ideas/finds when the process of discovery actually involves many factors within and outside of the elite circle of status-holding archaeologists.
