Because archaeological remains are silent, archaeologists sometimes call on other human sciences such as ethnology, sociology and history’s auxiliary sciences, such as numismatism, for example, to interpret the signs of the past.
It was with this in mind that, in the early 20th century, Henri Hubert and Marcel Mauss designed the comparative archaeology room, to illustrate “the ethnographical history of Europe and Mankind” based on the study of “all the social facts” from the origins of Man to the Early Middle Ages.
