For those with a sense of adventure, mystery, and discovery, Cerro Coso Community College is offering an archaeology class at the Ridgecrest campus this fall. Part detection, part research, and part treasure hunting, the course will cover the basic principles of archaeology, study ancient civilizations around the world, and practice hands-on archaeological techniques.

ANTH C131 (72454) introduces archaeology as a subfield of anthropology that studies humanity's prehistory, history, and present through the study of material remains and the archaeological record of human development from our origins to modern times.

The class will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:10 to 6:35 p.m. in the East Wing 202 with Dr. Sarah King.

ANTH C121 (72446) Physical Anthropology will meet with Dr. King on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2 to 3:25 p.m.  This class examines humans as biological organisms from an evolutionary perspective.  Areas covered include concepts, methods, findings, and issues in the study of the order primates, including relationships between fossil monkeys, apes, and humans, and the significance of genetic diversity among modern populations. 

On campus Fall 2018 classes at Cerro Coso Community College begin August 20, 2018. Complete registration and course information is available on the web or contact the Counseling Department today at (760) 382-6219.
