Archaeological Objects

Objects found in contexts of archaeological research, more specifically, those unearthed from periods before usually the 19th century and from extinct cultures. For objects originating in any culture still living or known through relatively recent history when those articles are the concern of ethnographic or ethnological study, prefer "ethnographic objects.".
