Historical Analysis

Can the scientific method is applied to historical analysis? This is a debate me and a fellow coworker were having. Do you think that the scientific method can be applied to historical analysis. I was not sure and want to get some other opinions. From what I can tell … Not good. You have no control over the variables and can not run experhyments. However, sometimes you can compare similar civilizations (expected) differ in only one aspect and I guess if the difference in that aspect had an effect. Testing the technology is somewhat easier in that you can build and test an item. Read about Kon-Tiki for an example.
