Archaeology is the only discipline that studies change in human lifeways over very long periods of time, usually hundreds or thousands of years. This course is designed to introduce students to early complex societies, progressing from the origins of agriculture through the ancient states and empires in the Old and New Worlds. We will be covering spectacular archaeological sites and discoveries such as Tutankhamen’s tomb and Machu Picchu. We will also be covering less-known sites and discoveries such that nevertheless provide important information regarding our development as a species and the deep cultural histories of different parts of the world. Through course lectures, readings, and assignments, students will gain a better understanding of what factors contributed to social changes in the past, and be able to more successfully reflect on the social issues of the present and the future.
