ANTH 311. Archaeology of Virginia


3.00
A comprehensive survey of human experience in the Old (Old!) Dominion. Archaeological discoveries in Virginia, ranging from evidence of Ice Age pioneers to colonial-era plantations, will be the basis for charting wider cultural developments in eastern North America. Through these cases, basic archaeological principles, methods and theories will be reinforced. Activities and assignments will involve manipulation of original archaeological data using basic quantitative analysis. The course will also feature profiles of prominent Virginia archaeologists and sites, as well as an overview of the discipline as it is practiced in the state today. ANTH 197. Archaeology  is recommended, though not required.
