  Anthropology Videos and DVDs at the UMD Library
 Archaeology and Classical Studies Videos and DVDs in the UMD Library

Video materials used in class explore and illustrate many topics covered in this course. Consider these presentations similar to lab sessions, that is, view them carefully and critically rather than simply watch another movie or video. The exams will include these materials, and it will be assumed that you have paid critical attention to them.
