There are two parts to archaeology: digging, and interpreting.
Digging is pretty much a science these days, with standard procedures
and methods of reporting. Every last particle of dirt is subject to
examination to extract as much evidence as possible.
Interpretation, however, is not a science. It is intuition and
guesswork. It may be very plausible, it may even be right, but of course
you have no way of knowing for sure.
