ANTH 3902 - Battlefield Archaeology

Battlefield Archaeology is a very diverse subdiscipline of traditional archaeology; the goal of which is to develop a better understanding of ancient and modern military battlefields, the participants who fought on them and the artifacts they left behind. In this course we will learn how ancient Roman coins, recovered from archaeological sites can be used to determine Roman military deployment throughout the Roman Empire. We will examine numerous archaeological studies of ancient and modern battlefields and learn how to identify as well as preserve many military artifacts. Parts of this course will be taught in conjunction with Fort Benning’s National Infantry Museum or other military museums.

Prerequisite: ANTH 1102
