Archaeology of the Southwest is an introductory course that provides a basic overview of the US Southwest’s ancestral cultures. Its twelve evening class sessions will cover cultural sequences, dating systems, subsistence strategies, development of urbanization, depopulation of different areas at different times, and the general characteristics of major cultural groups that have lived in the Southwest over the past 13,000-plus years. Besides offering an up-to-date synthesis of southwestern cultures for anyone interested in the archaeology of the Southwest, the class is a prerequisite for all other courses offered in the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) Certification/Education Program.
