Archaeabacteria are a group within the Kingdom class (alongside Animalia, Eubacteria, Fungi, Plantae and Protists) in taxonomy as well as one of the three Domains[1].

Archeabacteria are classed as unicellular organisms and exist in extreme conditions[2]. They can also be termed 'Archea'[3]. The group of organisms was discovered as recently as in the 1970s and altered the classification of life. 'Life' was hence separated into three groups: Eukaryota, Eubacteria and Archeabacteria[4].
