L’archéologie est une discipline qui essaie de reconstituer l’histoire de
l’humanité, des temps des sociétés sans écriture à nos jours, en analysant
les « objets » enfouis sous la terre, vestiges, sites ou artéfacts matériels. Ici, nous
nous appuyons sur les documents archéologiques accumulés au musée depuis les
temps du Laboratoire d’archéologie afin de retracer l’histoire de l’archipel japonais
compris en lien avec l’histoire globale du monde. Les recherches scientifiques
menées par le Laboratoire d’archéologie, département des études littéraires de la
faculté de lettres, répondent aux travaux d’archéologie du shintô propres à
l’université Kokugaku.in pour permettre de remonter à la recherche du coeur des
êtres qui ont peuplé cet archipel.
