Red Comet’s new online high school elective course “Archaeology: Detectives of the Past” exposes students to the rich and interesting field of excavations and scientific analysis. The field of archeology helps us to better understand the events and societies of the past. This understanding helps us comprehend the events that have shaped our modern world. Archeology involves the study of the data left behind by the societies and cultures of the past - material artifacts, cultural landscapes including those intentionally created by humans, and architectural monuments.
This course focuses on the techniques, methods, and theories that guide the study of the past. Students will learn how archaeological research is conducted and interpreted, as well as how artifacts are located and preserved by experts. Finally, students will learn about the relationship of material items to culture, and what we can learn about past societies from these items.
