Can You Dig It? Intro to Archaeology
Morgan Bender, M.A.
This is a twice a week, 2-week course that will introduce you to the wonders of archaeology!
The Introduction to Archaeology class serves as a fun, and interactive launch into the study of cultures that lived in the past. Archaeologists are like detectives. They use artifacts and the sites the artifacts come from as clues to the past. We will start with what archaeology is not. It is not “Indiana Jones” or “Tomb Raider,” and it is not pot hunting or grave robbing. Although it is fun to imagine it as such! Join us for this informative and exciting class! Each lesson will cover...
The purpose of this class is to introduce students to the field of archaeology as a whole as well as emphasize the importance of the field and how they can contribute to the future of archaeology. In the beginning of each lesson, I will discuss a clear topic and specific goal. At the end of the lesson, we will discuss how that contributes to the field. Students will learn by the productive discussions we have, associated homework, and emphasis on how each lesson is intertwined and pertinent to archaeology.
I have been fascinated with archaeology since I was a child. My parents encouraged me to follow my passion throughout my life. I now have my Masters in archaeology and work in the field that I love. It is now my turn to pass on my passion to another group of kids. I have traveled to archaeological sites in the United States as well as in Europe, from the Coliseum in Rome to Ephesus in Turkey. I have worked as an archaeologist for three years throughout California, making me well versed in prehistoric and historic archaeological. I have practical knowledge of how archaeological techniques are done as well as the educational background to teach students how these techniques developed over time. The traveling I have done will draw the imagination and awe of young minds into the lesson and my practical knowledge will teach them that a career in archaeology is attainable and important.
2 files available upon enrollmentI will provide any material needed for homework and the lesson via a website link or pdf. It would be beneficial for the student to print the page but it is not mandatory.
Although not intended, the subject of death (i.e.: tombs and mummies) may be brought up during class.
