Archaeological Landscapes

Investigating Archaeological Landscapes using GIS & 3D Technologies
In this course we will explore human uses of and impacts on landscapes using geographic information systems (GIS) and 3D technologies. We will employ a range of methods to analyze how spatial and temporal patterns of material remains and environmental factors reflect and shape cultural practices. Through archaeological studies of the ancient Maya in Central America and the Nasca-Palpa region of Peru, we will explore a variety of factors that shape landscapes—past and present—including urban design, social networks, cosmology, population dynamics, and climate change. Cross-cutting the humanities and sciences, we will critically and creatively evaluate spatial and temporal categories and frameworks. (GEOG 0120 or by waiver) 3hrs. lect./3 hrs. lab
