Guide to Speculative Fiction (Halie) Speculative Fiction is a vast and multidimensional genre, but one of its agreed-upon defining characteristics is that it is set in a world recognizable as (or very similar to, or a future version of) the one we collectively experience as reality, but with significant narrative elements that interrupt said reality.
These "speculative" elements can exist in Horror, Supernatural, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and many other types of fiction. Often times, the landscape in a work of speculative fiction is under threat, whether it be from ecological disaster, evil forces, monsters, ghosts, magical corruption, aliens, totalitarianism, or an unexplained or unknown event that has otherwise altered the way humans live. Defining Speculative Fiction can be challenging and quite subjective, and tracking all of its development and specifications is likely a fool's errand, so I've embraced fluidity in this guide.

According to the Society for American Archaeology, archaeology "is the study of the ancient and recent human past through material remains. " With these objects, archaeologists attempt to put together pieces of the past to understand human culture further. Who Can Practice Archaeology? Most archaeologists complete at least a Bachelor's degree in a related field (commonly anthropology, geography, or history/ancient studies). It is also required that at least one field school of an archaeological excavation is completed before working as an entry level field technician.
Why Do We Do Archaeology? Archaeology is done to preserve the material culture and lifestyles of people before us. When Is Archaeology Done? Archaeological research can be done for academic purposes, but is also required to be done in the U.S before construction begins for federal projects.
