Historical archaeology attempts to bring textual and archaeological data to bear on questions of the past. In practice this can mean many different approaches, including some that are not traditionally termed “historical archaeology”. This course explores the range of such efforts, asking questions like, What kinds of sites/contexts/data are amenable? What are the implications of the term “historical archaeology” itself? What has been and can be learned using these approaches?
