ANTH 394 Q - Koobi Fora Field School (4 credits)

(Prereq: ANTH 101 /ANTH 101L ) This course introduces students to archaeological field and laboratory methods. In the field, students learn techniques of archaeological excavation, mapping, and survey. They help excavate archaeological localities that were buried from a few thousand years ago to almost two million years ago, search for fossil remains of hominids, help in trying to interpret what they find in the context of human biological and behavioral evolution, and learn the fundamentals of savanna ecosystems.
