ANTHR 4294 - Seminar in Archaeology: The Archaeology of Human Origins

(also ARKEO 4294 ) (HA-AS)
Spring. 4 credits.

T. Volman.

An exploration of the archaeological record associated with early modern and near-modern humans as well as their nonmodern contemporaries, such as the Neanderthals. Major issues include what behaviors and capabilities are indicated for various populations, and how and why did these change over the course of the later Pleistocene? To what extent does the archaeological record support the “Out-of-Africa” hypothesis of a recent, African origin for all modern humans?
