ANTH 24 Early Civilizations of the Andes

The Andean region of western South America is one of a very few world regions where agriculture and urbanism developed independently. This course will consider Andean prehistory from the arrival of the first humans, covering hunter-gatherer lifeways, the domestication of plants and animals, and the emergence of hierarchical societies such as Paracas, Nasca, and Chavin. We will finish with a discussion of early states and empires, looking at the Moche, Wari, Tiwanaku, and Chimu societies.

Dist:INT or SOC; WCult:NW

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
