ANTHR 2201 - Early Agriculture

(crosslisted) ARKEO 2201  
(GHB) (HA-AS) (CU-SBY)     
Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

N. Russell.

Throughout most of the human career, people survived by hunting and gathering wild foods. The advent of food production is one of the most profound changes in (pre)history. This course examines the current evidence for the appearance and spread of agriculture (plant and animal domestication) around the world. We will consider definitions of agriculture and domestication, the conditions under which it arises, the consequences for those who adopt it, and why it has spread over most of the world.
