Introduction to the history, methods, and issues of the field of historical archaeology. Extensive readings provide examples of archaeology from post-1300s contexts in North America, Africa, Australia, and Latin America. Topics covered range from archaeological approaches to ethnic, gender and class diversity to the study of large-scale processes of colonialism, industrialism and global expansion. Broader issues discussed include the relationships between history and anthropology, the cross-cultural impact of European expansion, and the development of contemporary industrial societies.
