ANTHROP 2HH3 - Science, Technology & Society: Archaeological Perspectives

3 unit(s)

This course details the feats of engineering that gave us the pyramids, the million-year history of mining, and how elites rise with new technologies: from the wheel to steel. We locate the studies of fracture mechanics, quarrying, and smelting within a broader consideration of how engineering and technological innovations came to be, and their impact on past societies.
Lecture and discussion (three hours); one term.
Prerequisite(s): Registration in Level II or above in any program
