ANT 335 - Experimental Archaeology


2010-2011 Catalog Year

This course explores the role of imitative experiments in contemporary archaeology. These experiments bring the past to life by replicating ancient technology and site formation processes and provide a valuable supplement to more conventional methods of data recovery and analysis. Examples include making and testing the operation of replicas of Neolithic stone axes, Upper Palaeolithic lamps and ancient Mesoamerican pottery kilns, transporting heavy objects such as Easter Island statues and reconstructing Iron Age houses and farms.

PREREQ: Upper division standing and nine hours of social and behavioral sciences.
