AR390j: Public Archaeology

Modern archaeology no longer involves just digging up the past; it is also concerned with the involvement of local communities and the role of the public in the interpretation of the past. This course will explore the growing importance of public archaeology through the examination of topics such as consultation with indigenous communities, activism, communication and social media, nationalism, and public outreach.
