Class Experience

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.
I have a PhD in History and an MA in Archaeology and over twenty years’ experience in teaching. I’m also a long-time dog lover and owner.  
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
