ANTH 111 PZ - Historical Archaeology


This course examines the goals and methods of historical archaeology, as well as the archaeology of specific sites. Its focus is North America and the interactions of European immigrants with Native Americans and peoples of African and Asian ancestry. Archaeological data are used to challenge accepted interpretations (based on written documents) of such sites as Monticello and the Little Bighorn Battlefield. We will look at early Jamestown’s relationship with the Powhatan Indians, the lives of Thomas Jefferson’s slaves, and other examples as seen through the archaeological evidence.

Instructor: S. Miller
Course Credit: 1.0
