Historical Archaeology

Prerequisites: ANTH 114 and one ARCH or HIST course at the 200-level or above. This course uses archaeology and material culture to go beyond documentary histories. Historical archaeology traditionally examines western colonial and industrial societies, illuminating the lives of “people without history” in those societies, and sometimes questioning the documentary record. This course also extends historical archaeological methods and theories to non-western sites and peoples. Offered alternate years. V.1
