ANP 264: Great Discoveries in Archaeology introduces students to the history of archaeological discoveries around the world and how those discoveries have helped us to understand our shared past and cultural heritage. The course will focus on a series of key archaeological discoveries that over time have captured the public’s imagination. By exploring these exciting discoveries, students address pivotal archaeological questions about our shared cultural heritage and gain a better understanding of the nature of archaeological inquiry (how and what archaeologists do what they do).
Students can take this course online from anywhere in the world and make progress towards their degree. All that students need is a computer, a modern browser, and a broadband internet connection.
