EVENT: Archaeology Seminar: Professor Alistair Paterson
|Archaeology Seminar: Professor Alistair Paterson : A millennium of cultural contact
This seminar reviews the process of cultural contact over the last millennium throughout the world. Traversing the globe from crossing the North Atlantic at AD1,000, and opening trade routes across Asia by the 18th century, Europeans had established colonies and trading posts in the far reaches of Australia and Oceania.
The wide variations in exploration, conquests and colonisation are discussed using archaeological case studies of the material culture and history of the indigenous peoples of all continents as they resisted, accommodated, repelled or were conquered by the newcomers.
Join us for this final session in the Archaeology Seminar Series for First Semester 2012.
