ARCH 1050 Old World and New World Perspectives in Archaeology
This course examines how archaeologists working on different sides of the world study the past. Archaeology in the Old World and New World has developed on parallel, but separate trajectories. While these approaches share methods and theories, they often interpret archaeological data in alternative or even contradictory ways. In this course we will view archaeological topics from both perspectives, using examples from the Mediterranean and Mesoamerica, to try to better understand, and perhaps bridge the gap between some of our differences.
Prerequisite: An introductory course in archaeology, either through the Joukowksy Institute or the Anthropology Department.
T Th 2:30-3:50 pm. Instructors: John F. Cherry and Thomas Garrison
