ANTH 3390 : Lab in Archeology

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: ANTH 3305  
This course introduces laboratory methods through a project-oriented, hands-on format. A major focus of the course is on the inferential processes through which archaeologists recover and understand the past. This course also introduces many of the important principles and concepts that archaeologists use to analyze, manage, curate, and publish artifacts and the data associated with them. In addition, it allows the opportunity to have some hands-on experience with artifacts. Hands-on experiments in class help reinforce the theoretical concepts. Finally, the main goal is for the student to get basic "literacy" with respect to archaeological analysis and develop good lab habits rather than master any particular kind of analysis.
