It is considered, in North America, to be one of the four sub-fields of anthropology. Environmental archaeology is a sub-field of archaeology which emerged in s and is the science of reconstructing the relationships between past societies and the environments they lived in. The field represents an archaeological-palaeoecological approach to studying the palaeoenvironment through the methods of human palaeoecology. Reconstructing past .
