Description

This core graduate seminar provides a foundation in the anthropology and archaeology of small-scale societies, particularly hunter-gatherers. The seminar’s temporal remit is broad, spanning ~3 million years of human evolution from the earliest tool-making hominins to living human societies. A selection of critical topics will therefore be covered. These include theoretical aspects of and evolutionary trends in forager subsistence; technologies; mobility and use of space; sociopolitical organization; cognition; symbolism, ritual and religion; and transitions to food production. Topics are illustrated using diverse case studies drawn from across the globe. In the process, major events in deep human history are illuminated alongside the theoretical approaches and methodological techniques that archaeologists employ to understand them.
