Module overview

This module examines the central role of technology in archaeological constructions of social life. It integrates techniques for the investigation of materials in archaeological science with discussions of social theory.

You are encouraged to read widely and to explore inter-disciplinary approaches to materials and technology including those derived from archaeology, anthropology, sociology, technology studies and materials science.
