Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Steve Nicklas is a man who understands his subject and his students. He is awesome at what he does, but usually talks too fast for any one to write down all of what he says. The good thing is, he is more than willing to allow you to record his lectures. I have taken four classes with him and learned so much about history, politics, other cultures, and how to write seven page paper and wish I could keep going.
In the Into class we learned excavation methods, artifact identification, and how tools developed from the stone age until the late iron age. One of the best things about this class is that you get to touch and see the artifacts you are learning about. Lithics, pottery, coins, and all sorts of interesting pieces that ties what you are learning to a physical item.

Don't skip class and respect Nicklas. Those two things will get you far in this course.
