Great Digs 2019 (MALS 74500)

Private Group active 1 month, 1 week ago

This is the group for the course MALS 74500, Great Digs 2019.

The description of the course is below:
Archaeology offers new and different perspectives on the past, as artifacts, ecofacts, the built environment, and architecture speak for people rather than texts. This course introduces students to major archaeological methods and evidence, as well as important archaeological sites from the Classical, Late Antique, and Islamic worlds. The two primary methods of archaeological inquiry—excavation and survey—are introduced, discussed, and problematized in this course. We will then consider a range of different classes of archaeological evidence often with regard to specific sites, in order to understand how archaeology has contributed to our knowledge of these sites, debates in archaeology, cultural studies, and/or history. Cultural Heritage, museum practices, and the preservation of archaeological sites will also be considered. Classes will be a combination of seminar and lecture. Guest lecturers will speak on different aspects of archaeological study and there will be site visits to cultural institutions in New York City.
