The study of the past can sometimes feel impersonal, a matter of empires, civilisations and cultures, but archaeology also has a marvellous potential to access the real lives of ancient individuals. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the exploration of social lives in the (pre)historic past, using lectures and seminars to illustrate how material culture can tell us about even the most intimate aspects of our ancestors. Among the topics will be issues of ancient identity, ideology, religion, sexuality and environment.
