BA tilvalg-studieordning i Nærorientalsk arkæologi, 2007


The course uses the historical overview students have gained in the Introduction to Mesopotamian and Egyptian archaeology (1.sem.) and builds on it. The understanding of the time period between ca. 4000 BCE and 1914 CE will be deepened in the course. The teaching treats topics such as political organisation, gender studies, landscape archaeology, pottery analysis etc,. and is arranged thematically. The basic knowledge will be taught in lectures, but the students will have to prepare for each class to discuss and understand the more detailed information about these topics. This can happen in group discussions and group presentations. At the end of the semester the students will present short lectures that will give a specific example of an approach to an archaeological question and material.
