ANT 210 - World Archaeology
World Archaeology
Prerequisites: None

Humanity evolved in Africa and then spread all over the world in a geologic heartbeat. about 10, 000 years ago, human societies in several parts of the world began to undergo major transformations when hunter gatherers settled into sedentary villages. This course will provide a broad view of the origins and development of prehistoric societies around the world. Throughout the course we will examine broad patterns in human prehistory: the origins of culture, religion, domestication and agriculture, writing, cities, and states. We will ask: what can similarities and differences in the development of societies tell us about how cultures change? Are domestication, agriculture, sedentism, and cities inevitable? How did past societies influence each other and continue to influence us today?
