ANT 350 - Mediterranean Ancient Landscapes Modern World


Humans are active agents in the physical world and play a pivotal role in its transformation.  Consequently, contemporary societies inherit landscapes that are the product of an integrated, long-term relationship between humans and their environment through time.  This is of particular interest in the Mediterranean world not only because cultural complexity, urbanization, and the origins of nation-states and empires unfolded over the course of millennia, but also because of the rich historical, archaeological, and paleoenvironmental records that help to characterize this process.  This course introduces the ways in which archaeology and other historical sciences can inform on contemporary issues of resource management, conservation and cultural heritage in the Mediterranean in the context of the global change.
