Description

Based largely on evidence gained from the archaeological record supplemented by input from history, cultural geography and other disciplines, this course will give students the opportunity to explore the ways in which people have adapted to the challenges of living in the prairie environment. Topics such as the archaeological evidence of spatial patterning of settlements, social context of built environment, use and organization of space, gender, ethnicity and the material culture of settlement will be examined. Case studies dealing with the archaeology of indigenous settlement on the plains, the fur trade, Metis, ranching era and homestead era as well as others will form the focus of discussion.
