Prerequisites/Notes: ANTH 120 and junior standing or consent of instructor

Catalog Description : An examination of a particular topic in contemporary archaeological research. The specific topic investigated changes each year. Students are expected to carry out independent research on the topic, either through a review of relevant literature or through field or laboratory work.

Topic for Spring 2018: Foragers to Farmers
The Neolithic revolution, the shift from hunting and gathering or foraging to agriculture and animal husbandry, which began ca. 10,000 years ago, was the last major change in humankind’s subsistence economy. The shift had significant ramifications in all areas of culture (economic, social, political, religious, and possibly even linguistic). It was also caused by and led to great changes in the environment, and perhaps even in our DNA. The seminar will investigate these changes and the different mechanisms and models of Neolithization in different parts of the world.
