Archaeology has emerged into a multi-disciplinary science, departing from the traditional methodology of ‘descriptive archaeology’. It now employs various scientific disciplines, like geology, material sciences, metallurgy, anthropology, botany, zoology, computer science, statistics, etc. This lecture will explain a few case studies of understanding and interpreting the past using scientific disciplines, in particular, those undertaken by the speaker in the field of Harappan archaeology. The case studies will include on the bead drilling technology of the Harappans, evidence for textile remains and their interpretation, evidence for mobility of people during third and second millennium BCE.
