One of the sweetest, most genuine professors I've had! She has a genuine interest in her subject matter & plenty of field experience to draw on for examples. So helpful & interested in her students! It's not 100% necessary to go to lecture, but the majority of lectures were so interesting & funny that I didn't want to miss! Highly recommended!!

Amazing woman. Prof. Young is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She wants her students, and everyone she meets to do well and learn as they go. Drop into her office hours and talk to her, she will be warm, welcoming, and helpful with anything you ask, even if it is advice outside of class. She is a mom to her students.

Prof Lisa is really helpful - you can get a lot of tips just by visiting her office hours before exams/projects are due! Grading really depends on the GSI; getting an A requires a fair bit of work on the projects, but it's definitely not unreasonable.

Super nice lady! Didn't mind going to lecture but it could get a bit boring. Text book readings were not mandatory in my experience but you should at least skim through the articles she assigns. Grading isn't too bad but it really depends on the GSI you get. Exams are not hard, just study the review she sends out.

A very nice lady!! The class was rather boring and repetitive though but she and the GSI were willing to help.

She's a sweetheart! I really loved this class, it helped solidify my major in Anthropology. Even though the GSI grades harshly, the exams are nice, since she give you the short answer questions. This allows you to gather your thoughts. I really loved this class, and I always looked forward to going!

Great class. She's very knowledgable and interested in what she's teaching. She's very good at teaching in a way that anyone (not just anthropologists) could understand. Reading assignments aren't necessary but they're interesting. I learned a lot in this class and was actually excited to go to lecture.

She's an amazing professor! I never thought I'd be interested in archaeology but she made it really interesting. Also easy A, don't need to read the textbook at all. Just pay attention in class. The take home projects and exams are easy to get As in. I did both projects the night before and got full marks on one and 1 off full marks for the other.

Love this lady!!! she is so nice and willing to help you out. Exams are easy if you prepare for them using the study guide. Lectures can sometimes be boring but most of the are really interesting and fun. Discussions are boring and the Article Critiques SUCK because the GSIs grade so hard, but other than that, this is a great course.

Very nice and very helpful. Class is interesting and even sort of fun. If you go to class, do the readings (which are pretty easy and interesting), and have any writing ability, you're going to get an A. A rare interesting and easy class where you learn a good amount.

Amazing prof! Great class! Teaches you how to think and write critically. Interesting topics made more interesting by Prof. Young. Great to have a prof who is concise, clear, uses interesting examples, and cares genuinely about her students. She is like the Aunt you always wished you had, while at the same time being a great archaeologist.

Professor Young was a great teacher, who assigned interesting assignments that really involved the material in fun ways. While very interesting, and engaging, the class did have a good amount of work. She really cares about teaching and her students, something more professors need to be like. Highly recommended!

She is a wonderful professor! She makes the lectures interesting, is very nice and if you pay attention and read the chapters you should do just fine! Plus she's very helpful when you go to her in office hours, like when writing a Project Paper, she gives you good ideas! It was fun, although not really easy, still very worth it!

Young is a great teacher. She tried her best to keep her letures clear and interesting, and the course itself was really entertaining. She is a great exam writer and gives you the essay question topic before the exam so you can work out what you want to say on the test. Highly recommend this class for an easy, entertaining A.
