The best aspects of the course included the professor, who was enthusiastic and used many different approaches to teaching including lectures discussions, debates, museum visits and readings. The reading load was heavy and sometimes seemed to have no apparent purpose. Students said the course could be improved by shortening the lectures; however, many said the course was fine as is. Prospective students should be prepared to do a lot of reading and know that a background in archeology may be useful.
