ANTH& 204 - Archaeology

5 credits

This introduction to Archaeology on-line course explores the history, field practices, and objectives of archaeology, with an effort to understand how archaeologists do what they do, and why they do what they do. You will become familiar with the general terminology, principles and methods of archaeology, including excavation, site survey, laboratory analysis, ethno archaeology, archaeological experimentation, and the theoretical reconstruction of past societies. You will examine the controversies and political issues within the field of archaeology, and be able to develop your own opinions on these issues based upon your personal, cultural, and educational backgrounds. The overall goal is to begin training students to qualify as Cultural Resource Technicians for Native American communities.
