Description

The discipline of Archaeology studies the material remains of past humans and human activities. ARCA1000 provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts, principles and themes in archaeology. Topics to be covered include excavation, dating techniques, past technologies, human remains, trade and exchange, religion and art, the origins of agriculture and animal domestication, the development of civilisations, prehistoric Australia, historical archaeology (1415 onwards), human evolution and different theoretical approaches to interpreting artefacts and sites.

Colleagues are welcome to visit any of the classes, but the best lectures to visit will be during Weeks 7- 12 and the best tutorials to visit will be in Weeks 4, 6, 8 and 10.
