FYS 158 - Archaeology/Sustainability

Sustainability in prehistory and non-Western traditions constitutes the scope of this archaeological survey and project-based learning lab centered on the evidence for sustainable practices in and beyond the American hemisphere. In sum, we explore just how past cultural practices differ from or align with contemporary approaches to sustainability? And ask, what does archaeology reveal about the successes, limitations, and failures of past human efforts to generate sustainable practices?
