ANTH 542 - Field Research in Historical Archaeology (3 credits)

This course introduces students to historical archaeology and will cover field and laboratory methods including excavation, mapping, survey and consultation of historical sources in the interpretative process. An ethnographic component, where applicable, also incorporates oral history, interviews or other data from descendant communities for an ethno-historical approach. Students learn to process artifacts by washing, labeling, identifying, and analyzing them on site and in a laboratory. Students gather historical data from museums and other archival sources with which to compare archaeological findings. M, SU
