IS 4160 - The Ice Age
Integrates scientific and anthropological inquiry. Focuses upon the myriad environmental and evolutionary changes that took place during the past 2.5 million years commonly referred to as "The Ice Age." Climatic changes, rapid at times, led to lowering and rising sea levels, shifts in flora and fauna, and land form change, profoundly influencing the evolution of hominids from australopithecines to Homo sapiens. During this period humans moved out of Africa, to Europe, Asia, Australia, and eventually the Americas. Examines the physical changes in humans and cultural adaptations to the environments in which Ice Age humans lived. Spring of even years. Prerequisite(s): Junior status. (INCO)
