Investigating Archaeological Landscapes
- Lecture/Discussion: 3
This course will explore the theories, methods, and applications of landscape archaeology. Students will learn about archaeological surveying, spatial analysis of archaeological evidence, and how archaeologists use these to interpret regional settlement systems, agricultural land use, regional exchange and communication. They will also examine how ancient populations perceived and interpreted the landscape that surrounded them. Time will also be devoted to discussing the concept of cultural landscapes that unite oral histories, migrations and traditional land use of Indigenous peoples. The use of remote sensing techniques for analyzing landscapes will also be emphasized.
