Class Meeting Time: Monday – Thursday 9:54 – 11:20AM Class Meeting Place: HCB316 Dr. Kowal’s Office Hours: Tuesdays 8:30 – 9:30AM Why do you need to know about the past and prehistory? Why should you value the past? Humans created the world you live in today. This happened over 6 million years of evolution! In here you learn how humans and culture began, changed and adapted, how some humans disappeared, all from the material remains discarded and recovered of their lives. Humans and their culture appear very different today, but we all share so much despite this diversity due to our prehistory. Why then are we so different and how did this happen? Through cultural comparisons you’ll observe how much we really are alike. This is why we study the past and value the knowledge gained from archaeological research. Studying about past peoples, challenges, and their history, our history, explains our world in the 21st century and what to expect in the future. Course Catalog Description: This course outlines the major events in human cultural and social evolution and includes a brief presentation of general archaeological methods and objectives.
