This workbook was designed for the Introduction to Archaeology (ANTH 2339) class in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Texas at Arlington. It was created to provide exercises that supplement and expand on topics and issues raised in lecture. For each major topic, students complete exercises that serve a range of functions; for example, some chapters are designed as note-taking aids to be filled out in class and/or during lecture (Chapter 4), while others can be completed at the end of the week to review key concepts and ideas. Exercises in this workbook vary from creating bullet point lists, completing tables, conducting online research, and writing short essays. At the end of the course students will have a completed workbook that can serve as a study guide.
