I am an avid subscriber to The Great Courses lecture series, and have completed quite a few of them now. This particular course, Archaeology: An Introduction to the World's Greatest Sites, by Eric H. Cline, has truly been one of my favorite. I zipped through the 24-lecture series in record time. Cline completes multiple tasks in this series: 1) Introducing students to the fundamentals of Archaeology as a science, 2) Guiding students through many of the world’s most important archaeological sites, 3) teaching key aspects of the discipline such as where and how to dig, and 4) discussing the history and future of archaeology. All of this, combined with his energetic and engaging style, made for a simply enjoyable series of lectures. Far beyond the world of Indiana Jones (though not minimizing its sometimes positive effects to the field), this course will open the real world of archaeology to its participants. It did for me, and I highly recommend it.
