(Second semester/3 credits) 

An introduction to the methods and theories that underpin the discipline of archaeology. Traces the history of archaeology from its beginnings in European antiquarianism, through some of the great discoveries of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and into the scientific and interpretive models used in the field today. The emphasis will be on the intersection of evolving technologies of archaeological practice and developing interpretations of past societies.
