Themes in World Archaeology (ARC1010)

15 credits

What developments shaped human history and how are they manifested in the Archaeological record? This module will explore major overarching patterns of human behaviour and social change, from the earliest evidence for tool-making, through the emergences of cities and complex societies, to the global configurations of the colonial and post-colonial era. Using examples and case studies from across the world, the module will introduce the archaeological evidence that has elucidated these patterns, including many key sites, projects and archaeologists.
