Module overview

Archaeology reveals how during prehistory certain transformations have profoundly altered human societies. These include the adoption of domesticated plants and animals, sedentism, the adoption of new technologies (such as pottery) and the emergence of complex forms of social organisation. This module explores these transformations through a selected range of regional case studies, emphasising the diverse nature of complex human societies across the globe and through time. Over the course of this module you will not only learn to critically assess society in the past, but also what this reveals about the world we live in today.
