Ancient Technology Round 2

Today is the first day of the new semester at BYU.

I start teaching Anthropology 207: Ancinet Technology today.

This time around I will try a few new things. I'd like to introduce some working with bone as well as more incorporation of theory. In other words, why are we making all of these things?

Hopefully, it won't be over the students' heads, but increased theoretical application would be ideal. Last year, the class had an "arts and craft" feel to it. While that's not entirely bad, I would like to see more of an academic and research emphasis.
