Ba-tilvalg i nærorientalsk arkæologi, 2007
The course deals with the archaeology, history, economy, climatic conditions, as well as the material evidence and the socio-political development of the Neolithic period in southwest Asia and northeast Africa. The time period covered by the course reaches from the Palaeolithic to the Late Neolithic period, concentrating on the time between ca. 12.000 to 6.000 BCE. In addition to sites, material culture and chronology, students will also learn about the theoretical models used to explain the transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture.
Students will prepare a short paper (5-7 pages) mid-term and will be expected to give one in-class presentation (15 minutes), as well as participate actively in class. Completion of these is mandatory to be allowed to sit the exam.
The course will be of interest to all with an interest in late glacial societies, the Neolithic, and the development of Middle Eastern societies.
