Fundamentals of Archaeology with Laboratory

4 credits


College of Arts and Science

Archaeology is the study of human behavior as reflected in our material remains. This course provides the foundation for a career in archaeology. Students will be able to identify important insights into human history and behavior derived through archaeology, define the methodological and theoretical underpinnings of archaeology, explain the techniques used to extract data from the archaeological record, and summarize the development of archaeology as a discipline. The lab involves hands-on experience with archaeological materials. No credit for both ANTHRO 2020 and ANTHRO 2021.
