Stuff.  We're surrounded by stuff: objects, buildings, and landscapes.  Perhaps more than we realize, "stuff" shapes, defines, penetrates who we are.  In this course we rely on historical archaeology and geography to better understand how our daily lives are shaped by our "stuff."  Over the course of the semester we will study how people move through, use, and think about Boone and the ASU Campus landscape.  We will also conduct light archaeological fieldwork to understand how those landscapes were used in the past and how they've changed over time.  This is a reading and research intensive, activity-oriented course.  When not discussing readings, we will be doing laboratory work.  When not doing laboratory work, we will be outside on campus or somewhere in town -- rain or shine, cold weather or warm weather.
