AN 208 - Archaeology of the American Southwest


Credits: 3
An introduction to archaeological discoveries of prehistoric and protohistoric populations in the ancient American Southwest.  To learn about the origins of agriculture, architectural and ritual change, and conflict in the region, students will examine cultural diversity from Paleoindians to pre-contact Puebloan populations, hunter-gatherers to agriculturalists, and indigenous groups ranging from northern Mexico to southern Utah.   Students will also discuss and debate archaeological data regarding themes such as occupation patterns, migration, material culture, violence, and adaptations to climate change in arid environments. 
Note(s): Fulfills non-western and social sciences requirements. Must be taken for a letter grade.
