This course takes a cross-cultural and deep temporal perspective on how different societies have dealt with death. Mortuary archaeology draws on different threads in Anthropology, including ethnography, bioarchaeology, and archaeological theory. It also reaches beyond Anthropology to take an interdisciplinary perspective on how societies deal with death.
Prerequisite(s): Registration in fourth year in Anthropology, and permission of the instructor determined by application. A minimum grade average of 80% in 2200-level and higher Anthropology courses is recommended.
