Abstract

© 2015 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Archaeology is the science of “historical gaps”; we always deal with incomplete knowledge, with fragments and materiality left by human action. To make sense of this limitation is one, if not the most relevant of the goals of our discipline. Dealing with incomplete series of archaeological observations of broken objects and remains means dealing with uncertainty. In other words, we should assign levels of reliability to our explanations in situations of uncertainty.
