             2) By what means do historians and archaeologists date, classify and arrive at generalizations about the civilizations whose remains they are studying?.
             Historians and archaeologists date and classify remains from civilizations using many different methods. One method of classification is how deep the artifact is in the tell, if it is deeper into the tell chances are that it is older. Also if there is a language on the artifact they could see what time period those types of people settled there.

Artifacts can also be classified by what lies on top of it and what is underneath it. .
