This course focuses on Arctic history as revealed by archaeological research on the 40,000-year history of humans in the Arctic and how Arctic peoples and cultures adapted to and changed Arctic environments from Late Pleistocene times to recent times. The course covers the historical development of Arctic archaeology, relevant archaeological and anthropological theory, methods of archaeological analysis and interpretation, and how archaeology is practiced in the North today. The latter topics will include issues like repatriation, museum collecting and display, heritage awareness, tourism, economic development, education, and climate change.

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.
