    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an excellent survey of the ancient Maya and covers the basics of archaeology. The class is heavily discussion-based and will force you to develop creative perspectives of anthropology, as a whole, as well as the subset of archaeology.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned the basics of archaeology, the underpinnings of anthropology, and the major themes that differentiate the Maya from other ancient Mesoamerican peoples. Learning that the Itza people were able to hold out from Spanish control until 1697 was certainly a highlight for the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the readings and take note of the words that appear in their ancient Maya script. They will be defined in the text, but you will want to be able to recognize them for the quizzes.
