Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating material, well presented I am looking forward to the rest of this course and hope it will be published soon. The instructor is very clear and thorough, and (as has been noted previously) especially good at answering the "how do we know this?" questions when presenting the recent expansion of knowledge in this area. I've had a lifelong interest in archaeology and anthropology, and have searched for archaeology, anthropology and ancient history topics in Wondrium ever since joining, and don't know why this just became visible to me now. Where has it been? Where is the rest of it? Excellent professor! Some more visual materials (if available) would be appreciated in the video version; but it is also strong as simply audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I thought I knew quite a lot about archeology but Suzanne Birch is making me see the topic in a brand new light. She is a great teacher. ''How do we know ... this or that ?'' She explains what her kind of scientist do and how they arrive at their conclusions: THAT is what a really good teacher does. Thanks. Bring the rest of the course !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting ! This course intends to show the relationship between classical archaeology and unrelated sciences such as physics, when using isotopes , to discover new information to give us a clue of how life was many thousands of years ago. I would be looking forward to this complete course

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed. Can't wait for more. Wondrium needs more advanced and modern courses. A huge number of subjects do not change so much in time, pedagogically. Archaeology does, however and this is very modern obviously. Thank you for beginning an important course in Prehistory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eagerly awaiting the full course! I'm looking forward to the rest of this course, as it appears to cover material that is not available in other courses. The pilot episode was quite interesting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super Boring 90% audio. It should have multiple visual aids, but it has very very few.

Overview

Discover the fascinating world of archaeological science and see how it helps us to understand the almost 200,000 years of human prehistory before the known years of "Homo sapiens" and farming.
Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

01: Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

Join archaeologist Professor Suzanne Pilaar Birch to discover what the fairly new school of archaeological science can tell us about life before agriculture at the continental scale of human migration, since our species first emerged in East Africa 200,000 years ago, to the earliest agricultural societies which appeared around 12,000 years ago—all the while, adapting to the diverse environments around the world. Using insights gained through detailed case studies and cutting-edge scientific methods, you’ll see what guided human decisions about what to eat, where to live, when to move, and how to acquire what was needed for daily survival.
