Archaeological interpretation increasingly involves the use of ideas from anthropology because this discipline provides an insight into how people live their lives in other cultures. This course provides an introduction to the study of how other societies are organised and how they have been studied by anthropologists.

The topics covered include

  • kinship, marriage and sexuality, and
  • the political and economic organisation of traditional societies.

There is much emphasis on the study of key anthropological texts, especially ethnographic accounts of other peoples.

The course is taught through lectures and interactive tutorials. Emphasis is placed on the study of key anthropological texts, especially ethnographic accounts of other peoples.
