World Prehistory and Archaeology

This course uses archaeological and other anthropological data to study the major aspects of human cultural evolution from a worldwide perspective. The subject matter encompasses three major periods in the human past - food foraging during the Pleistocene and early Holocene, early food producing societies, and the first civilizations. In all cases we explore the reasons for cultural changes and we use both Old and New World examples. Case studies illustrate particular archaeological cultures and standard archaeological techniques and methods. PREREQ: ANTR 1006/1007 or instructor's permission. (lec 2, lab 1) cr 6
