ABSTRACT

The present paper attempted to detect the all possible methods used in archaeology and also tries to pick up modern tool which is to some extent less destructive to the archaeological sites in modern time. The methods can be put into three regions: selecting sites, collecting artifacts and ordering the past artifacts. The prehistoric time involves uses of organic and inorganic materials which may crumble to dust when exposed to atmosphere. So, it has also been explained in the present paper about the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) which is a Non-Destructive Techniques (NDT). Secondary sources served the purpose to track out all the possible methods. The methods help to discover archaeological sites and artifacts which are then dated by different dating methods and are arranged in an order. Later, the experts may trace about the prehistoric settlement pattern, trading system, religious belief, artworks and social organizations by interacting the artifacts.
