Archaeology and the Liberal Arts

Peter Bogucki believes that archaeology, in all its forms, is an essential element of a truly liberal education.    Unfortunately, it is a neglected subject at institutions that claim to offer a liberal education.    Prehistoric archaeology taught in the anthropological tradition is sadly absent from the curricula at a surprising number of institutions.

For some thoughts on this matter, see the talk that Bogucki gave to the inductees of Phi Beta Kappa, Beta of New Jersey, in November 2021 linked below.
