The history of archaeological thought has changed a great deal since the speculations of early antiquarians, often in tandem with political and social opinions of the time. This module will introduce students to the many ways in which archaeologists have sought to negotiate their relationship with the human and material past from the nineteenth century to the present day, so that they might develop a critical understanding of the relationship between archaeological history and theory; its impact upon the study and practice of archaeology; and its regional and global development.
