This course examines the fascinating archaeology of North America. We will look at highlights such as the first settlement, maize-growing and the emergence of complex societies before European contact. We will explore initial colonisation by Eurasian hunter-gatherers, the geography of North America, colonisation of the continent, Palaeo-Indian hunter-gatherer societies, the Middle and Late Archaic early mound builders, the Woodland-Adena-Hopewell and Mississippian cultures, and the pueblos of the American Southwest. Finally, we will compare and contrast these societies to others in the New World.
