ARCHAEOLOGY OF ANCIENT CIVILISATIONS
Credit points: 15
This subject reviews what archaeology has discovered about the world's great civilisations. We investigate how they came about, and the implications of this knowledge for the survival of our own civilisation. We embark on a survey of the elaborate variety of complex human societies that have arisen in the last 6,000 years: in Egypt and the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Western Europe, China, Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent, Mesoamerica, Peru, and sub-Saharan Africa.
