Archaeological studies describe the course of human development and past societies. Our past is our cultural heritage, and how we choose to use this information for future generations is an important role for archaeologists. They recognize the importance of understanding, protecting, and celebrating our rich and diverse cultural heritage and study these patterns and changes in human behaviour over long periods of time. The understandings of evolution of various cultural events give the clue for the formation of future development policies.

The present volume offers various empirical researches which led to the understandings of different cultures and ancient human behaviour patterns. This work will be of great interest to all those involved in the anthropological, historical and environmental researches in unfolding history and developing future policies.
