ANTH 3040 - Topics in Archaeology



Goals: To study topics in the subdiscipline of archaeology. Intended primarily for anthropology majors or those interested in majoring in anthropology.

Content: Focus varies. While the topic covered in this course may vary from year to year, all versions of ANTH 3040 will provide students with an understanding of archaeological method and theory including how archaeologists study landscapes, settlement patterns, and material remains to understand human history and human culture. Instructors will use a case-study approach (i.e. pre-contact North American archaeology, historical North American archaeology, or archaeology of the modern world) to help students understand the nature of human variation and diversity as culturally, biologically, linguistically, historically, and geographically situated. As part of this course students will develop writing and research skills such as writing a literature review, an annotated fiction, and a heritage preservation proposal. Recent example: North American Archaeology.

Taught: Annually, Fall semester

Prerequisite: One 1000-level ANTH course or consent of instructor (ANTH 1160 is recommended)

Credits: 4
