Anthropology 213. World Pre-History.

Using world archaeological sites as stepping stones, creates a narrative of prehistory from Australopithecus
through the advent of urban civilization in the old and new worlds. Focuses on three general revolutions in
human history: 1) the emergence of the genus Homo with all its modern attributes; 2) the development of
agriculture and animal husbandry during the Neolithic; 3) the coming together of humans in cities and states,
and the ramifications for human society. Prerequisite: Anthropology 110 or instructor permission.
