ANTH 480mc

This is a brief introduction to zooarchaeology. This microcourse is meant to be an informative way to learn about how archaeologists study the animal bones that we excavate, and what we can learn from the study of animal bones. This should take a couple of hours at most to complete. This is a free microcourse offered by the School of Continuing and Online Learning (SCOL) at Cardinal Stritch University. It is online, self-paced, facilitated, and not for credit.
