Historical Archaeology Promo Square

New course for Spring 2024!

For undergrads and grad students!

Interested in the untold stories of U.S. history from the 1500s to today?

Historical archaeology’s mission is to use a combination of archaeological and historical resources to tell the stories of those that did not make it into history. And, to critically evaluate those that did.  Over the course of the semester, we will learn the methods and theory of the field by reading and discussing original research, covering the colonial and early U.S. period, the formative U.S. period (19th century), and archaeology of 20th century and today.   You will also get an opportunity to work with archives, documents, maps, and artifacts. And, you’ll do an original research project (for undergrads, a great writing sample and research experience when applying for jobs or grad school).

The best part: no exams. ;)
