Dates: June 15 - July 10, 2020
The online course will introduce you to the rich and diverse archaeological past of Native Americans in North and Latin America.

The course seeks to: spark your interest in a fascinating, diverse, and mysterious part of the ancient world; introduce you to the field of archaeology and its big research questions; delve into the detailed “histories” of ancient landscapes in this broad region; introduce you to controversies and debates related to looting, ethics, ownership of the past, repatriation, and contemporary Native American issues. The content includes slide shows, short readings, online videos, and discussion modules.
