Description

Arkeologia – ikkuna menneisyyteen

Arkeologia on monille tuttua elokuvista ja televisiodokumenteista, mutta mitä arkeologia oikeasti on? Arkeologia tutkii aikaa, jolta ei ole kirjallista tietoa. Tutkimuksen materiaalia ovat kiinteät muinaisjäännökset, esineet ja muut luonnossa havaittavat merkit ihmisen toiminnasta.

Arkeologian opiskelu sopii kaikille menneisyydestä, historiasta ja kulttuureista kiinnostuneille. Opinnot sopivat hyvin myös esimerkiksi museo- tai kulttuurialalla työskenteleville sekä hallinnossa ja tiedotusvälineissä työskenteleville. Opintojen avulla voit ymmärtää paremmin menneisyyttä ja sen avulla myös tätä hetkeä

Opintojakso Suomen arkeologian perusteet tai vastaava englanniksi opetettava Introduction to Finnish archaeology -jakso sopii kaikille arkeologiasta kiinnostuneille, jakso painottuu nimensä mukaisesti Suomen esihistoriaan ja historiallisen ajan arkeologiaan.

Having completed the course, students will have acquired basic knowledge of prehistoric and historical-period archaeology in Finland, as well as of prehistoric and Medieval phenomena, archaeological remains and artefacts.

The course covers the main trends and trajectories in cultural development in Finland from the Stone Age to the Medieval Period, reviews the general characteristics of Finnish archeological research, and provides basic knowledge of typical archaeological remains and artefacts. Themes covered include the earliest settlement of Finland after the Ice Age (and possibly earlier), different types of burial and dwellings throughout the millennia, as well as changes in ancient economy, religion, and warfare. The emphasis is on the prehistoric period, although Medieval and post-Medieval archaeology will also be briefly discussed.
