Proposal: Sociology and Anthropology
Prompted by this example question and the comments there, I'm wondering whether this proposal/stack will take archaeology questions or not.
Wikipedia explains quite nicely:
Archaeology, which studies past human cultures through investigation of physical evidence, is thought of as a branch of anthropology in the United States, while in Europe, it is viewed as a discipline in its own right or grouped under other related disciplines, such as history.
On History.se questions about archaeology seem to be off-topic. So they've obviously taken a more 'American' approach.
The header of this proposal seems to suggest archaeology would fit this site:
Proposed Q&A site for people interested in the development of human culture and society and discussion of their functions, qualities, evolution, implications in other areas of study, and how they are evolving now.
Will this site allow archaeology questions? To what extent? Do we only accept those that are related to the development of human culture and society, or also the ones about archaeological theory and methods used (like e.g. 'What are the benefits of using a Total Station over hand drawing when mapping a dig site?')
