ANTH 4210 - Historical Archaeology



This course will cover primarily the archaeology of North America from the arrival of the European colonists until the early twentieth century. It will show students how the archaeological record articulates with the historical record to expose parts of the past that may not be earily visible in written history. Case studies may address colonial American, slavery and plantation life, finding and preserving sites, situating women and minorities in the past, and using documents and artifacts in tandem to critically deconstruct interpretations of the past. The course may also include examples from other areas of the world.
