Great Professor, plain & simple. Has a great sense of humor during class and truly loves the material he is teaching. His lectures are straight forward and provide a great background to the material you read, as well as expand on the material and connect it to present day times.

The exams (essentially 3 midterms) are 1 short answer and 1 essay that are usually based on the readings, but ask you to incorporate lecture material into them for a full, complete answer.

The readings can be a little bit boring at times, but the overall topics are quite fascinating.

Absolutely do all the readings and go to every class, he does a random sign up sheet that accounts for 10% of your grade. Oh, and make sure you meet with him outside of class, that dude knows so much on this stuff that he can't possibly convey it solely during lecture (really helps get you that A on the tests).

if you are not an antro major it can get somewhat boring (Some Archaeology). grading is based on participation and three out of four (5 pg) papers. papers are all based on articles from your reader. the class only requires one reader and the readings are not too long. Athough his lectures help you to understand the readings, you cannot depend on the lectures for your papers. overall the class is interesting and not too dificult. if you are looking for a class with out too much stress, this is the class for you.

oh yea, i almost forgot, he also stresses on plagiarism, he sometimes dedicates an entire session to it.

I have to disagree with the reviewers here. I had a great seminar style (15 people max) class with him and was constantly impressed by his knowledge. He has a great sense of humor and keeps things interesting.

Although, not an all-time fav, dont be scared away from a great professor.
