Anthro 328-1 The Maya
What do we know today about the ancient Maya who inhabited the Yucatan Peninsula in Central America before the 16th century? In this course you will get a general understanding of ancient Maya civilization and the ways archaeologists, linguists, historians, and indigenous communities have examined the Maya past. Through weekly readings and discussions, we will focus on material remains -including temples, carved monuments, exotic items, and farmers' houses and tools- to learn about ancient Maya lives. Major themes will include ancient Maya cosmology, literature, cities, resilience, and sustainability. This course is an introductory-level seminar and requires no prior knowledge about the Maya history, archaeology, or the Yucatan Peninsula. By the end of the course, you will be familiar with the major developments, key players, and ongoing issues in Maya archaeology.
