Anthropology | Prehistory of Europe
P310 | 9435 | Kalentzidou


Who were the people who populated Europe in prehistoric times?  How do
archaeologists reconstruct these societies without the evidence of written
records?  Were these prehistoric groups ancestral to historic European
groups or were processes of migration and ethnic displacement more
important?  This course is a survey of the current state of prehistoric
archaeology in Europe.  Lectures, readings and assigned projects will
focus on the different prehistoric cultures that occupied European lands
and their interactions.  Through the study of settlement patterns, trade
relations and ideology, we will explore ways of interpreting
archaeological evidence and some of the issues involved in the recovery of
archaeological remains.
