HART 221 Great Discoveries from the Ancient World

Archaeology can be defined as the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture, the things people living in past times have left behind them which we use to better understand earlier times. These ‘things’ range from the objects they used in everyday life to their monuments and even their preserved bodies. This course examines how the method of archaeology originated and how it has developed up to the present day by analysing a series of ‘Great Discoveries’ from the well-known, such as the discovery of Troy or of Tutanhkamun’s grave, to less well-known examples, as with the finding of the Hoxne hand-axes and the grave of Richard III of England. In doing so the course will present the wide range of scientific methods used in archaeology today Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: 5.
