It would be nice if you had a clue, James, as to what was
taught in Universities in Canada. Marxism is dead, Marxist Professors common in the 60's and 70's have retired, and curricula are loaded with real work and focussed on the subject and not on the poor oppressed people. I did 3 courses in 1987, and only one half course was a gimme, not because it was easy, but because I had long had an interest in the subject beforehand, as was indicated by my identifying a slide of a particular piece of Celtic table ware, The Basse Yutz vase. Only two of us got that right in the class, and the other person admitted to having made a lucky guess. And would you characterize having to identify 8 hand axes by date and period easy? Try distinguishing between Folsom Points versus Clovis Points, and then multiply by 4. And recognizing a Folsom point is easy because of the fluting that runs down the centres of the two faces where the haft is fastened on with pitch and animal ligaments (because tendons aren't long enough).
