Archaeology’s Dirty Little Secrets
Participants in Sue Alcock’s Archaeology’s Dirty Little Secrets explored archaeology from a variety of perspectives. Videos and readings in the course prompted participants to think about key questions in modern-day archaeology. Course materials featured Brown-sponsored research projects and conversations with Brown faculty. Participants also practiced “thinking like an archaeologist” through a range of hands-on assignments asking them to explore archaeological practices in their own backyards and communities. ADLS created a global community of individuals who shared a common curiosity and passion. To date, over 60,000 students from more than 170 countries have enrolled in Archaeology’s Dirty Little Secrets. Many continue to contribute to the course community via social media and group blogs.
