Admit it — you wanted to be an archaeologist when you grew up... This course builds on that enthusiasm, while radically expanding your notions about just what archaeology is and just what archaeologists do.
Unit #1: Just what are these secrets anyway?
Unit #2: What has survived for us to find? And what have we lost?
Unit #3: So how do you find things? Archaeology ≠ just digging
Unit #4: How do you get a date? (And why are dates so important?)
Unit #5: What do you do with what you find?
Unit #6: What is involved in the archaeology of people?
Unit #7: Where does archaeology happen? Who can play?
Unit #8: Who owns the past?
