Archaeology is the study of past cultures and societies through their material remains. The course will explore different types of archaeology and examine theory, methods, and techniques for investigating, reconstructing, interpreting, preserving, and learning from the past. ANT 2100 will review our cultural chronology from the time of the first people, the earliest Paleolithic ages, to the present: important social, economic, and even ideological questions, such as those on the origins of food production, social inequality, and civilization will be discussed. Two major emphases throughout the course are archaeology-as-anthropology and the relevance of archaeology to modern human society and politics.
