ANTHR 2215 - Stone Age Art

(crosslisted) ARKEO 2215  
(HB) (CA-AS)      
Fall. 3 credits.

T. Volman.

When did “art,” however defined, appear during the human career, how was it produced and for what purposes? These are some of the questions we will investigate through a survey of the discovery, validation, analysis, and interpretation of the earliest art. The course will cover a variety of finds from the Old World, including the well-known cave art of southwestern France and northern Spain, and also consider portable art and decoration. The contributions of new analytical techniques and interpretive approaches are highlighted.
