ANT 22500 Introduction to Archaeology

In this course, students will be introduced to the anthropological sub-field of Archaeology. The course includes components on the history and development of archaeology, theoretical underpinnings of archaeology, current and applied archaeology, cultural resource management, public education, job prospects, and a practical, hands-on, field experience in survey and excavation. Students will attend lectures during the first months of the semester and then participate in an actual field survey and limited excavation project on certain weekends in the last month (requires significant physical activity in the outdoors). Lab fee required.
