ANTHR 2215 - Stone Age Art

(crosslisted) ARKEO 2215  
(HB) (CA-AS)      
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

T. Volman.

When did “art,” however defined, appear during the human career, how was it produced and for what purposes? These are some of the questions we will investigate through a survey of the discovery, validation, analysis, and interpretation of the earliest art. The course will cover a variety of finds from the Old World, including the well-known cave art of southwestern France and northern Spain, and also consider portable art and decoration. The contributions of new analytical techniques and interpretive approaches are highlighted.
