If it is difficult to imagine what life was like during prehistoric times, it is often harder to understand how we piece together our knowledge of the past from bits and pieces of ancient evidence.

This class will introduce you to what we know about prehistoric cultures and ancient civilizations. It will also involve you in the types of questions archaeologists ask about the human past, and the scientific methods we use to search for answers. We will develop your understanding of the major changes in human culture by examining a series of archaeological case studies -- sites from different times and places around the world.
