Course Description: Environmental Archaeology investigates the long-term history and prehistory of human-environment relationships, a study based on the application of the natural and earth sciences in archaeology. The course builds an understanding of key issues such as human ecology, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, human responses to environmental change and human environmental modification through a combination of lectures, debates and laboratory work. Key methods, including archaebotany, zooarchaeology and geoarchaeology will be discussed and explored through practical participation to solve problems. Case studies focus on archaeological research from different regions, including the Caribbean and Australia-Pacific, to illustrate concepts and methods, as well as providing a focus for formal critical debate and reflection. Student participation in classes is expected.
