ANTH V1007x The Origins of Human Society 3 pts. 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.
