ANTH V 1007x The Origins of Human Society
Examines the grand sweep of human development from our first bipedal steps
some six million years ago, to the earliest evidence of art and symbolism,
and on to the emergence of the first agricultural villages. Given the
immensity of time under consideration, emphasis is placed on those heightened
periods of change commonly described as "revolutions". Participants will
become familiar with the fossil and/or archaeological records or those
revolutions and the competing theories of why they occurred.
