Udbydes efter BA 2010-studieordning Mellemøstens sprog og samfund på BA-niveau med specialisering i de centrale fag Arabisk, Assyriologi, Hebraisk, Nærorientalsk arkæologi, Persisk, Tyrkisk og Ægyptologi, 2010

The course deals with the archaeology, history, economy, climatic conditions, as well as the material evodence and the socio-political development of the Neolithic period. 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. Its geographical area includes the Near East (Levant, Mesopotamia, Iran, Anatolia) and Egypt (as well as Sudan).  The theories and approaches to explain the neolithisation are an important part of the class, so that students will be able to critically assess such explanations.

The students will prepare group-work that will be presented in class. The participation in such group-work as well as writing a paper of 5-7 pages are the pre-conditions for being allowed to the exam.

The course will be of interest to all students who wish to learn about Hunter-Gatherer as well as early agricultural societies.
