From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Archaeology is the scientific discipline of excavating, studying and learning from the past.

The Doctor's companion, Peri Brown, had at least a passing interest in archaeology (DW: Planet of Fire) Another, Bernice Summerfield, was, by trade, an archaeologist before she met him, and had a supposed degree qualifying her as a professor in it, though not an official one (NA: Love and War). Bernice specialized in archaeological studies after they parted.

Archaeology is the study of the history of civilizations through the recovery, examination, documentation and analysis of material evidence. Xenoarchaeology is archaeology focusing on alien worlds and civilizations. Individuals who study archaeology are known as archaeologists.


Archaeology is typically carried out by a slow and painstaking process of uncovering and examining artifacts and other remains of former settlement sites. Because of this, much of the examination and analysis is done on site. Expeditions to such sites can vary in terms of team size and amount of time dedicated to recovery.

In 2368, Dr. Marjorie Devarona led a small team to Rajatha Prime, to a near pristine site previously undiscovered due to the planets ionosphere obscuring sensor scans. Amongst the ruins of the Rajathan civilization the team discovered a collection of Harmonic diamonds. Unfortunately these valuable stones stimulated primitive emotions in the teams brains causing them to kill each other in jealous rage. Only two of the team survived, per Dr. Devarona's final request the gems were used to fund further expeditions across the quadrant. (TNG - The Space Between comic: "Captain's Pleasure")

In c.2372 Istani Reyla travelled to Beta Kupsic to participate in an archaeological dig. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book One)

The ancient city of B'hala was a major archaeological site on Bajor. The operation was organised by the Order of the Temple and consisted mostly of Bajoran archaeologists, however a few offworlders were also involved, including the Human Jake Sisko and a group of Vulcan chronologists. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book One)

Announced on eq2players, New Character Class: Archaeologist

The EverQuest II team is happy to announce the inclusion of a new character class in Game Update 34. This class will be the first class to allow players to start new characters in Haven as an exile. We now introduce you to the Archaeologist.


Class Details

Archaeologists are the first example of 'Master Classes' in EverQuest II and will be one of the harder roles to fill. Archaeologists will start out weak initially, relying on stealth, speed, and the Investigation skill that has recently been added to the game. As they gain levels their class skills will include increased combat proficiency with the bullwhip, and pickaxe, and exceptional evasion abilities.

Races Allowed

Only humans, dwarves, and gnomes may select the Archaeologist class (Arc for short) in Exile.

Tradeskill Synergy

As master explorers and discoverers, the Arc class will gain a 20% increased chance of harvesting rare tradeskill items, and will benefit from a tradeskill exp. bonus of 1% per tradeskill level.

Signature Quest

To help starting Arc players, a new Signature Quest starting in Exile will take players through the first 20 levels of experience. The quest involves the search for an artifact known as the Orb of Detection. This orb will grant Arc's increased resistances, and invisibility on command. Archaeologists will be able to maintan their invisibility while harvesting.

New Title System

In addition, the Arc class will be the first to demonstrate the new Class/Title system which grants players visible titles based upon the level of experience in their class. Here is a peek at the first 30 levels of titles for the Archaeologist class.

  • XL 1-2: Digger
  • XL 3-5: Field Worker
  • XL 6-9: Investigator
  • XL 10-13: Exhumer
  • XL 14-17: Excavator
  • XL 18-21: Spelunker
  • XL 22-25: Speleologist
  • XL 26-29: Collector
  • XL 30: Curator

Class Hat

Also included in this update will be the Archaeologist Class Hat: The Fedora. Arc characters will start with this hat at first level, allowing us to avoid the time it would take to build the full quest line. It will not be equippable until 65^th level, and is No Trade, No Drop, and No Destroy. Due to this perceived bonus of receiving a hat at first level, the fedora will only be half effective if the character is swimming, or it is raining outside your house.


As an added bonus, we have forced the apprentice developers to work hard on including a phobia system into the game. This manifests in a new fear effect in the game which will cause an instant evac to the tutorial islands for any character affected by their phobia.

  • Archaeologists will have the 'snakes' phobia.
  • Paladins will have the 'dirt' phobia.
  • Dirges will be phobic to songs in Major keys, especially from Boy Bands or American Idol.
  • Other classes will get to learn the hard way.

In Closing

The EQII dev team is very excited to share this new class announcement with you. The Archaeologist class should be available on the third Tuesday of April, provided the server hamsters hold up. Here is a preview picture of a 70th level Archaeologist to hold you over until then.

Notable features Archaeologist

Asgarnia Smith is an archeologist non-player-character that plays a role in the Desert Treasure quest. Players begin the quest by talking to him. He is searching for treasure and is one of many NPCs based on Indiana Jones (such as Anna Jones and Orlando Smith), as he seems to have a whip attached to his belt. After completing Desert Treasure a player can talk to him to hear of his adventures, which are very similar to the plot of several Indiana Jones movies. According to Smith, he once managed to recover a Karamjan artefact known as the Golden Monkey of Tee-Tah-Toh. He also tells the player that he has heard of more treasure in Karamja, and he will be going there shortly.


Asgarnia Smith is a reference, as is the way with archaeologists in RuneScape, to Indiana Jones, a character in a real-world series of films. His name is akin to Jones' as well, with the name of an area as his forename (Asgarnia is a kingdom in RuneScape and Indiana is an American State), and a very common surname (Jones and Smith are both common in Western cultures). His name could also be a parody of the series of children's educational videos starring a man named Arizona Smith.

Archaeology is the scientific study of cultures. The science focuses on recovering evidence, then documenting and analyzing it, and ending in interpreting the data. Evidence can come from a wide range of sources. Xenoarchaeology is a specialist field of archaeology, dealing with non-Terran cultures. People trained in this science are called archaeologists or xenoarchaeologists (depending on their specialty).


Aboard Starfleet starships and other installations, an archaeology and anthropology officer was an archaeologist familiar with a wide range of cultures.

Some archaeologists included USS Prospect-A officers Anne Cobry and Amy Bell and USS Pendragon commanding officer Timothy Sinclair (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles; Star Trek: Minnesota; Star Trek: Pendragon) . An alien technologies officer was sometimes an archaeologist as well. (Star Trek: Avenger)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A xenoarchaeologist.

Archaeology is the study of ancient cultures through the analysis of recovered artifacts. It is a broad science that draws upon anthropology and geology, and itself includes xenoarchaeology and bioarchaeology.

Jedi archaeologists were a type of Jedi historian that worked in the field. Jocasta Nu was a xenoarchaeologist before being employed as a librarian in the Jedi Archives. Other Jedi archaeologists include Corask Slen'da, Tyneir Renz, and Nu's apprentice, Jerec. Some Sith similarly specialized in archaeology, like Veren Gal.

Amateur archaeologists operating for personal gain are typically called treasure hunters. Suz Tanwa[1] and Aach Een[2] were notable treasure hunters.

Both the Obroan Institute and the University of Agamar had archaeology programs.



Xenoarchaeology was the study of vanished off-world or alien cultures through the scientific analysis of the artifacts left behind.

Known xenoarchaeologists included the Rodian Suz Tanwa[3], the Brizzit Tzizvvt[4], the Sullustan Blibbie[5] and the Human doctors Anki Pace[6], Fasha Dansun[7], Angrail Ryhl[8], and Corellia Antilles. Dr. Shilaea Motacc, an experienced amateur in archaeology, was a professional of different sciences.[5] The Kallidahin were considered xenoarchaeologists, though they only researched their own possible ancestors, the Eellayin. Xenoarchaeology was closely related to the similar science of Xenosociology.

The worlds of the Gree Enclave were especially attractive to xenoarchaeologists as they contained exotic artifacts and advanced technology since lost to the wider Galaxy.[9]


Bioarchaeology was a less prominent branch of archaeology than xenoarchaeology, and dealt with the specific study of excavated bone remains.

Josala Krenn was one notable bioarchaeologist.[10]

Behind the scenes

  • A xenoarchaeologist was one of the templates in Heroes and Rogues, a sourcebook for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.
