Prehistoric Archaeology (Prehistory) is the study of human history which encompasses the very first humans up until the literacy of societies, which includes the first hunter and gatherers, societies with agricultural farming, Metal Age societies and the first urban settlements. These periods, rife with economic and technical changes that caused the first environmental destructions, were the birth of the human consciousness, caused the fall of egalitarian societies and beginnings of social inequalities and redefined the gender personae. Archaeologists excavate settlements, graves, depositions and artistic remains which are then recorded, documented and ananlysed. Johannes Müller is the professor (C4) and head of the work group for Prehistoric Archaeology in Kiel.
