Writing, Archaeology, and Ancient History: Rise of Civilization
This meetup we'll go over the separation of Archaeology and Ancient History in the study of Ancient Civilizations. What constitutes writing? Why are some civilizations primarily left to Archaeology? What is the Importance of Ancient History? In addition, basic overview of Neolithic and Chalcolithic Near East - centered around Anatolia, Palestine, and Mesopotamia. The information will be more of a summary with discussion of these topics and the lecture from July 11th, 2013. We encourage anybody interested to take advantage of the classes.
