New! Prehistoric Archaeology of Europe
Strengthen your research, writing, and critical reading skills.
Students in this new winter course will discuss the prehistoric cultures of Europe from the initial occupation of the continent prior to 1 million years through the Viking cultures of the 10th Century. We will discuss the initial colonization, successive spreads of migrations into the continent, and how complex civilizations developed and spread. We will look at material culture and how language and genetic studies can shed light on the topic.
The course is presented in hybrid format—some online meetings, some in person. The course will involve research and writing, critical reading and discussions.
Prehistoric Archaeology of Europe can satisfy a writing intensive course requirement or an upper level archaeology requirement.
Instructor Sarah Hlubik is an archaeologist and graduate student looking at the behavior of ancient humans and how archaeological methodology can shed light on what we can know about the archaeological record.
