ANT* 121: Introduction to Archaeology

3 Credits
This is an anthropology course devoted to the study of archaeology and how archaeologists help us to understand the human past. Archaeology is the study of past cultures and societies through their material remains. We will consider and explore the theory, methods, and techniques that archaeologists employ. The course will include a brief discussion and chronology of human and cultural evolution. We will then turn our attention to the purpose and process of archaeological field work and analysis. We will consider the ways that archaeologists reconstruct human behavior and we will explain how the discipline is relevant in the modern world. This class will include a ‘field-work’ component in which students will excavate a mock archaeological site. This class will also include several class trips to nearby museums.
Prerequisites: Eligibility for ENG* 101
