Iscuss how semiotics may be applied to the study of archaeology OR art history.

I am studying an art history degree with a speciality in Asian and African studies, so please write include many references to that. Please also be as analytical as possible, also i put both options of archaeology and art history, I think archaeology would be easier but if thats not the case then art history is completely fine aswell, but please do remember to add african and asian examples. I have three sources that may be helpful:

-Baxndall, Michael (1998) Patterns of Intention in Donald Preziosi (ed) the Art of Art History: A critical anthology Oxford, pp 52-61
-Grove art online Semiotics (electronic resource)
-Grove art online Barthes, Ronald (electronic resource)

Please include a bibiliography and visuals (if possible ofcourse)
Thank you very much.
