Archaeology is the scientific study of the ancient and recent human past through the material remains of past human activity. In this introduction to archaeology students will learn what archaeologists do and how they think through a combination of hands-on experience in the classroom or field and readings and discussion. Students may spend one to two weeks in the field learning field methods and/or visiting archaeological sites.
