ANT 110 - Archaeology (1)

Intensive introductory-level exploration of how archaeologists use a systematic scientific approach to investigate the past. Specifics on selected past cultures will be presented although this course is not intended to be a comprehensive overview of human prehistory. Students will learn about (1) research methods for the collection of archaeological data; (2) techniques developed for interpreting archaeological site formation, relative and chronometric dating, and artifact analyses; (3) a brief history of archaeological inquiry; and (4) essential theoretical underpinnings of major archaeological paradigms. Alternate years.
