HUM-1165 Introduction to Archaeology - 3.00 credits

HUM165 is the introductory course to the history, methods, techniques and practice of archaeology. Archaeologists study the past primarily through the material remains left by the occupants of a site. It is through the identification and interpretation of this evidence that we gain an understanding of our human heritage. Lectures presented throughout the course focus on methods archaeologists use to locate and excavate sites, analytical techniques used to process the data they collect, and interpretive methodologies. Examples discussed in class incorporate both historical and pre-historical cross-cultural archaeology. Not available for supplemental. Instruction (3.0). Equivalent to: ARK-1165, HUM-165.
