Archaeology Group Project

SUMMARY

“Like archaeology, research is not just about digging stuff up.”

Some ancients left written records, some cultures were young enough to have historical accounts written about them, but many cultures did not “spell it out” for us.  The material remains of these cultures are our source of knowledge about the ancient past.

ASSIGNMENT: This project is college-level, academic research into an archaeological site or archaeological remains anywhere in the world.

  • Your goal is to create an accurate, clear and insightful picture from the archaeological record.
  • Analyze and interpret the material remains by applying scientific, archaeological methodology.
  • Describe the site, material remains, location and environment, and dating.
  • Describe how they lived including:
    • *Subsistence        *diet       *bioarchaeology

      *How artifacts were made, used and distributed (trade, etc)

      *Social organization: status, interactions between people, divisions of labor, etc

      *How they saw the world around them, ideology, rituals, etc.
