Summer class!

Check it out!

Indiana Jones and Archaeology in the Mediterranean World

Tomb robbers, adventurers, spies, and gentlemen (and some women) travelers played a central but problematic role in developing the modern discipline of archaeology. This course will use the lives of such travelers, their archaeological discoveries, and well-known artifacts as case studies to explore the themes of the “rediscovery” of the ancient world and concurrent imperialism around the Mediterranean from 1790 to the 20th century.
Perfect summer class.  I'll miss the first two weeks but the instructor, a graduate student already added me to the list.
