ANTH 410 - Environmental Archaeology


Introduction to methods and theories relevant to analysis and interpretation of past human-environment interactions, by examination of historical and current theoretical literature. Emphases on outlining the kind of environmental data that survives in the archeological record (geological, botanical, faunal, chemical), recovery and analytical methods, and inferences made from these data to understand human-environment dynamics. Topical themes include the use of archeological sites as paleoenvironmental archives, plant and animal domestication, human impacts on ancient environments, and cultural collapse/resilience.
