Course description:  This course introduces students to the great discoveries in archaeology and the  way that archaeologists use material culture to reconstruct past human behavior and how it changed  through time. Through a series of case studies we will explore in chronological order several topics  that are of great interests to archeologists, including the origins of humans, the peopling of the New  World, the beginnings of agriculture, the development of complex societies, beginnings of writing,  and the rise and fall of some civilizations. Through this survey we will learn about the history of the  discipline, archeological methods, and changing interpretative models. At the end of the course,  students should be well acquainted with the major archeological sites and periods in human history  and be able to evaluate how the past is presented and valued in contemporary societies.   Lectures : Tuesdays/Thursdays:  9:30 am -11:00 pm; Room STO B50 Instructor : Dr. Ksenija Borojevic  Offices : Stone Science, Room 345B or 335 Office Hours : Office Phones : 617-358-1649 e-mail boro@bu.edu   Department phone  617-353-3415 Dept. Fax : 617-353-6800 Teaching Fellows : Karen Hutchins  STO 350   Office Hrs pm Ph. : 358-1643;  e-mail  hutchins@bu.edu Also by appointment (just ask after class, or contact us by phone, fax, or e- mail; you can slip a note under our doors. Mail box: Department of  Archaeology office (Room STO 347).   Textbook : 1) T. D. Price and G. M. Feinman,  Images of the Past 5 th  ed .  McGraw-Hill,  NY. ISBN 978-0-07-340520-9 and associated student web site  http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0073405205/student_view0/chapter1/ 2) assigned readings available on Course Info Grades : Pop quizzes in Lectures ( NB : the lowest grade will be dropped)
