Course Description

Anthropology 235 provides a survey of basic archaeological theories, methods, and practices. Intended for majors and minors in Anthropology and closely related fields, this course seeks to describe the current state of archaeological studies, in part by exploring the discipline's historical roots and presenting case studies from around the world. The course is designed to help students achieve intellectual independence in the field of archaeology- that is, you will not only learn about archaeology, you will learn how to think like an archaeologist.
