The Center of the Universe

Mod 1Okay, this is not the center of the universe (unless you belong to the Flat Earth Society), but it is where you will start your voyage of discovery of the many archaeological wonders found across the globe in ANP 264, Great Discoveries in Archaeology.

If you have ever seen one of those documentaries on television about archaeology, then you know that even one archaeological discovery is chock full of details ranging from “who was the intrepid archaeologist who discovered it?” to “why is it such a big deal that it gets its own hour-long show?”. Well, that’s what we will be looking at here for the next seven weeks.

So, in the immortal words of Mr. Roarke: My dear students, I am your host, Dr. Norder, welcome to fantasy … er … Great Discoveries in Archaeology!
