ANTH 6190 - Archaeological Practice and the Public


3 Credit Hours
Prerequisites: Anth 2030 or consent of instructor.
Description
This course on Public Archaeology covers a great number of fields where professional archaeologists work with public interests, upholding legislation designed to conserve ancient sites and artifacts, managing museum collections, presenting the past to the public, working with developers to reduce the impact of building and construction projects on the remains of the past. At the same time Public Archaeology covers the general public’s interest in the archaeological past: from fakes and illicit trade of antiquities to Indiana Jones, to the search for Atlantis.
