ANTH 541 - Field Research in Prehistoric Archaeology (3 credits)

This course introduces students to prehistoric archaeological field and laboratory methods. In the field, students learn techniques of archaeological excavation, mapping, and survey. Excavations recover evidence of historic and prehistoric habitation including tools, pottery, food remains, and hearths. During the field season, students also spend time processing the collected artifacts at an archaeological laboratory. Processing includes washing, labeling, identifying, and analyzing archaeological materials. Assignments for this class may include textbook readings, a final paper, and a field journal. M, Su
