ANT200H provides a survey of basic archaeological theories, methods, and practices including the ways in which data are recognized, recovered, analyzed, and interpreted. The course describes the current state of archaeological studies within the discipline of anthropology. Conducting archaeological projects is a collaborative effort; therefore, cooperation is essential to success in archaeology. This course will create many opportunities for you to participate in discussion and group work, especially during the tutorials. Frequent small group discussion will not only help you become an engaging and appreciated group member, but also effectively help you better understand the course materials. RATIONALE UTM ANT200H follows logically after ANT101H in which prehistoric archaeology is introduced as one of the major fields, or sub-disciplines, of anthropology (note that ANT101 is a firm requirement for ANT200). ANT200H is one of two gateway courses for all third and fourth year courses in archaeology at UTM (the other is ANT201H, World Prehistory). GOALS At the end of the course, you will: Have acquired the foundational knowledge necessary to understand advanced undergraduate training in archaeology provided by the Department of Anthropology’s upper-division curriculum. Have had a critical understanding of the basic principles of archaeological method, theory, and practice by anthropological archaeologists to investigate human past.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
