ANTH 4110 - Anthropology of Death & Mortuary Practice

Credits: 3
This course will focus on the archaeological analysis and interpretation of burial practices and other death-rituals.  By examining bodies from burials, archaeologists can learn about social organization, ritual practice, status and rank in life, gender, health and diet, even what the person ate for his or her last meal.  In addition to archaeological data, a strong emphasis will be placed on the information, drawn from cultural anthropology and ethnography regarding customs and traditions relating to mortuary practice which can be invaluable to archaeological interpretation.
