Professor Thornton is not a terrible professor like how the last reviewer claimed, but he doesn't have a youthful nature especially during his lectures. He tends to be monotone when he is lecturing and shows a lot of slides and videos from his work with the Smithsonian Institute and UCLA repatriation committee. The whole course focuses on the 2 acts and amendment passed to repatriate Native American remains and artifacts to their affiliated tribes or descendants. If this class sounds interesting to you, then you'll enjoy it. If it doesn't, you are going to be extremely bored for 10 weeks. However, this course is incredibly easy. Your grade is based on 20% for attendance and 80% for your take home final.
There is no way you can fail...
