CPAS

Archaeology, by its very nature, is interdisciplinary, and he development of more and more scientific applications has increased this characteristic. Indeed, today, the archaeological sciences permeate modern archaeological research. It is no longer possible to study archaeology without being familiar with an often bewildering and steadily increasing variety of scientific applications, including GIS, palynology, stable isotope analysis, chemical analysis of glazes, and a variety of dating techniques, such as TMS, TL, OSL, AMS radiocarbon. On the UGA campus, there is significant interest in archaeology and its scientific applications among students in anthropology, art, biology, classics, ecology, forestry, geography, and geology. The goal of the CPAS is to consolidate and coordinate the archaeology curriculum so as to facilitate broader participation from across campus and expose students to the true scope of archaeology as a discipline.
