Subject: Anthropology, Archaeological (ANTHRARC)
Department: LSA Anthropology

Requirements & Distribution:
SS
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

Cutting-edge science meets ancient artifacts as archaeologists unlock the mysteries of the human past. This course uses examples from around the world to demonstrate how we study “prehistory”—the time before written records, from our early ancestors to the development of major civilizations. We’ll talk about techniques used to collect archaeological data, what these data can and cannot tell us about the past (both of which are sometimes surprising!), and how we interpret what prehistoric lives were like.

Intended Audience:

No background in anthropology required; this course is designed both to serve as a foundation for those interested in pursuing more advanced topics in archaeology and to be exciting and useful for those in other majors.

Class Format:

Sections are designed to explore lecture topics in more detail, and to supplement them with hands-on interactions with artifacts.
