A broad survey of the archaeology of Europe from the earliest evidence for human occupation to the Roman conquest of Gaul.

Students will be introduced to painted caves such as Lascaux, Venus figurines and other Paleolithic art, mammoth hunters of the steppe, megalithic tombs, Stonehenge and other ritual monuments, the princely tombs of the Early Iron Age, Vercingetorix and the assembly of the tribes of Gaul, and many other phenomena of European prehistory. Lectures will be frequently illustrated with slides and supplemented by selected films. Student evaluation is based on examinations.
