HART-221 (2011-2012-Fall): Great Discoveries from the Ancient World
By: Asst. Prof. Julian Bennett

Archaeologists find and study a wide range of things - from preserved footprints to frozen bodies, from fossilised skulls to battlefield relics, from cities lost in the jungle to those buried by falling ash. Specifically designed for the non-archaeologist, this course demonstrates how discoveries like these as well as the study of the many monuments left to us by ancient societies have revolutionised our knowledge of man\'s past. Specifically designed for non-archaeologists, the course examines and assesses some of the more important archaeological discoveries and monuments that have helped change our view of the past, including some of the more famous and well-known finds, such as Tutankamun\'s Tomb and Troy, as well as several of the less-well known discoveries and monuments, as with the site of Custer\'s Last Stand and the Easter Island statues.
