Description

This unit introduces the discipline of Archaeology and the study of the human past through material remains. It traces the evolution of humans and human behaviours, the archaeology of gatherer-hunters, and investigates the emergence of farming through a review of a range of key themes and regional studies while also presenting many of the basic concepts used in archaeological research and interpretation. The unit acts as a foundation for the continuing study of archaeology.
