ANTH 131 - Principles of Archaeology


Credits: 3
This is an introductory course in archeology. A major focus is on the interpretation of material culture to answer questions about human evolution and cultural developments in the broad spectrum of the human experience. Key interpretative events in the archeological record are explored as lessons for understanding present day cultural conflicts. New and traditional archeological methods and technologies are studied. Case studies in the reconstructing of extinct societies and cultures, including Paleolithic North America, empiric Africa, prehistoric Europe, Prehispanic Mesoamerica, and ancient Asia, are explored.
