From Hunters and Gatherers to the Atomic Age
This course surveys the development of human culture after their emergence from Africa and entrance to the Americas. Students of Tracking the Footsteps of Humanity will get the “rest of the story” as modern humans spread throughout the globe, commit to agriculture, and establish global civilizations. Students that have not taken Tracking the Footsteps of Humanity, will have no problem jumping into the story as people begin to settle down on a global scale. The course will introduce archaeological and anthropological methods, theory, and findings through the lens of 6 broad topics. Class meetings include lecture, discussion, and readings.
Week 1: The Archaeology of Hunters and Gatherers
Week 2: Domestication
Week 3: Origins of Complexity
Week 4: Archaeology of Food and Fermentation
