Have you ever wondered how the dog became “man’s best friend”? How a predator became the dog asleep at the foot of your bed? Why there are so many different kinds of dogs, from the huge Great Dane to the tiny Chihuahua?

Learners will understand the relationships among wolves, dogs, and people and will get a chance to think about the role dogs have played in world history. You’ll see how both archaeological and historical evidence can throw light upon the past, and you’ll be able to sharpen your skills in using evidence from inscriptions, paintings, sculpture, poetry, mummies, and other ancient sources. You’ll also learn how the definition of a dog “breed” has changed over time.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
