ARPH2612 - Historical Archaeology

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Martin David Gibbs


This unit will introduce students to the international development of historical archaeology since 1960. Because of its explicit links to historiography and documentary scholarship, historical archaeology enjoys a uniquely interdisciplinary perspective, and has been directly influenced by shifts in both anthropology and history. The current practice and international form of historical archaeology will therefore be explored in detail.
