Multilineal & Unilineal Evolution
Here, we will examine the different stages of sociocultural evolution and how archaeology contributes to our understanding of how prehistoric cultures organized themselves. Be sure to complete the readings for this module as preparation for your initial post.
Be sure to answer thoroughly and provide APA-style citations as needed.
How would you approach a debate on multilineal versus unilineal theory to explain the stages of cultural evolution?
Which theory do you find more compelling and why?
How does the archaeological record contribute to this?
Read through your instructor’s and classmates’ posts.
Post a substantive response to at least two other classmates’ initial post. Make sure the post contributes to the conversation rather than just saying something like “I agree with you” or “You did a good job on this post”.
You are encouraged to make one of your replies to a peer who answered the other question option.
