For millennia North America has been home to a great diversity of
Native Americans. A rich archaeological record reflects ways of life
from the first big game hunters more than 12,000 years ago to the high
civilizations of Mesoamerica. The culture history of North America and
explanations for culture change will be explored through the
interpretation of archaeological remains from excavations. Native
American and Euro-American approaches to archaeology and history will
be discussed. Laboratory study of archaeological and ethnographic
artifacts from the College's collections is included. Enrollment
limited to 25 students. Prerequisite: ANTH 101 or 102 or permission
of the instructor.
