Intro to Archeology
Archeology is an exciting and fascinating approach to the study of human behavior. The artifacts that people leave behind offer important clues that help archeologists learn more about the human past. This course will provide an introduction to archeological techniques, concepts, and principles. Examples of archeological work will be discussed from a local and global perspective. Throughout this course, we will discuss how archeologists think and look at the past and the kinds of conclusions archeologists draw from material evidence.
In addition, students will be introduced to several specialties within the field of archeology. Some of these include artifact conservation procedures, experimental archeology, floral and faunal analysis, bioarcheology, and historical archeology.
