Anth 670: Adv. Archaeology of Political Systems


This course is designed to examine the archaeology of ancient political systems. Specific goals include discussing the major trends, concepts, and perspectives in the transformation of political organizations and social integration. A secondary goal is examining the empirical evidence for, and archaeological correlates of, political organization. The course will not cover all theories about past political systems, or serve as a survey of the rise and development of political forms in complex societies around the world. Rather, it is intended to be a direct and focused course dealing with several key aspects of political systems and how archaeologists identify and theorize about such systems using the archaeological record.
