The best aspects of this course were the hands-on labs, effective and organized lectures, and educational museum visits. The worst aspects of this course were the sometimes challenging exams and occasionally unclear grading system ï¿½ but most students wrote that there were no bad aspects of this course. Suggestions for improvement included adding more questions to each exam. Future students should know that students need not have art history or archaeology backgrounds to do well in this class, but studying and doing the readings is paramount. The class provides students a rare opportunity for hands-on learning about an interesting, unique topic.
