ANT 40500 Historical Archaeology

This course introduces students to the sub-discipline of Historical Archaeology. This course explores recent theoretical, methodological, and thematic developments in historical archaeology in North America. Topics concern the time period of approximately 1500 through 1900 and the material culture of Euro-Americans in North America. Students will examine how historical archaeologists use artifacts, historical documents, and other historical evidence in interpreting the recent past, and how historical archaeology uses material culture and historical documentation to study recent populations and issues such as class, gender, and ethnic identities.
