Archaeology is a contemporary discipline and the focus in archaeological questions, subject areas and theoretical debates constantly change with time. In this course we focus on some of the topics that are important for the ongoing research within our department, from domestication and climate change to community archaeology and relating to death. The different issues are discussed in text-based seminars, where the students themselves are responsible for presenting the topic and leading the seminars. The course aims to explore and challenge current trends in the archaeological discourse.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
The course integrates various components of Archaeological study to date, and students are expected to draw together, and build on, their knowledge from previous courses to tackle challenging and perhaps unfamiliar topics through analysis, discussion and open debate. Students will consolidate their skills as confident and autonomous learners and communicators through oral presentations and written work.
For flexible/distance learning student, a CLL course (KL 4528) , will substitute this module and is taken instead of this course.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
