Understand Context Before Details

In archaeology, context is everything. Objects allow us to reconstruct the past. Taking artifacts from a temple or an ancient private house is like emptying out a time capsule.

Understand the whole context before examining the parts.

The overall context gives us the understanding and the big picture for understanding the details.

When we look at the parts before understanding the context, the parts can be taken out of context.

Judging a situation without knowing the context may result in the wrong conclusion. In a similar way, examining facts before knowing the context may result in those facts skewing what the overall context is.
