ANTH 304 Rise of Complex Civilization (3)

Using the archaeological record, Rise of Complex Civilization surveys human cultural evolution leading up to the rise of complex society after the Pleistocene (10,000-3,000 BP). The basis of the course is a culture history for early/pre-farming cultures in the Near East and Europe. In addition to a culture history, processual issues such as the nature of post-Pleistocene human adaptations, the origins of food production, the spread of agriculture, the rise of stratified societies and the development of complex political organizations will be considered in detail.
