ARCHLGY 155: Geoarchaeology (GEOLSCI 179)

For undergraduates in archaeology with limited experience in natural sciences and also students in geoscience and environmental studies interested in learning how their discipline can contribute to studies of the human past. Soils and sediments of archaeological sites yield information on how combined environmental and anthropogenic factors form sites before, during, and after occupation. Interpretation of archaeological soils and sediments also offers important insight into past human-environment relationships from macro- to micro-scales and to the environmental context of the human past, including geological hazards and climate change. A fieldtrip and lab exercises introduce the field and laboratory methods and techniques of soil micromorphology for studying the geological and geomorphological processes applicable to archaeological interpretation of paleoenvironmental conditions and cultural remains.
