Current issues in archaeological theory

The aim of this course is to provide students with an in-depth and sophisticated understanding of the major contemporary trends in archaeological thought.

This course will enable students to place issues of archaeological interpretation in their broader theoretical framework, and should act as an intellectual underpinning for the more regionally specific courses.
