Lectures: Lectures will be delivered in person! (You will also be able to access the lectures on the Echo360 platform via our iLearn site.)
Tutorials for Internal students will be held face-to-face.
Online forums will be held each week for Online/Flexible (External) students.
Required Texts: The unit will be based on the following text books:
- Gamble, C., 2015. Archaeology. The Basics, 3rd edLondon, New York, Routledge.
- Renfrew, C. and Bahn, P., 2020. Archaeology: Theories, Methods and Practice, 8th ed, London, Thames and Hudson.
Recommended Texts: You will find these texts helpful, particularly as places to start your research for the assessments:
- Bahn, P., 2012. Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction, Oxford, Oxford University Press.
- Pearsall, D. M., 2008. Encyclopedia of Archaeology, San Diego, Elsevier.
- Smith, C., 2014. Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology, New York, Springer.
Supplemental readings: We will also assign or recommend supplemental readings whenever we find an article or chapter that particularly supports what we are doing in the lecture and tutorial.
Please Note: All readings for class should be completed before the lecture, and must be completed before attending the tutorials and taking the quizzes.
Real learning, which is based on independent, active learning, depends on coming to the tutorials prepared to discuss the material from the lecture and the readings.
UNIT WEBPAGE AND TECHNOLOGY USED AND REQUIRED
This unit will use the iLearn system (https://ilearn.mq.edu.au/login/MQ/) to communicate with the students, so you will need access to a computer and a good internet connection. Basic computer and word-processing skills are also required.
