ANTH 130 - Archaeology: Lessons From the Past

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
Archaeologists study the material remains of humans across time and space. From the stone tools of the earliest humans to the landfills we are contributing to today, the study of things allows us to write histories of peoples and places that are often left out of official records. This course begins with a review of archaeological methods then uses them to investigate contemporary issues. Topics covered may include climate change, health and disease, urban infrastructure, poverty and homelessness, and conflict and war. Other topics may be substituted in order to respond to shifting social and campus issues. Aviva Cormier.

Two 75-minute periods.
