Review the following information about these three fictional “archaeological cul

Review the following information about these three fictional “archaeological cultures”. Answer the questions in a short essay of 500-700 words.
As you develop your argument for how to interpret these data/information make sure that any claims you make have solid reasons that are supported by evidence drawn from these data/information.
THE QUESTION:
What historical and cultural processes might offer an interpretation for the changes seen in the archaeological record? Identify at least two such processes.
Again, make sure to offer clear reasons for why each of those processes (those core claims at the center of your argument/interpretation of the data) could account for those changes. It is then important to detail how the characteristics of each culture (i.e. the information provided) serve as evidence for those reasons.
THE DATA/Information:
Archaeological Culture A has the following attributes:
Settlements of 7-10 permanent domestic structures
Agriculturalist with wheat as the dominant crop
Hunting wild game for a significant portion of dietary calories and ritual purposes
Use of red decorated and undecorated pottery
Grain storage in large buried jars
Absence of any weapons other than the bow for hunting
Cremation burials
Archaeological Culture B has the following attributes:
Settlements of up to 20 permanent domestic structures
Agriculturalist with wheat as the dominant crop
Significant evidence of animal husbandry (sheep and goats)
Use of red and brown undecorated pottery
Grain storage in clay lined pits
Bronze swords and use of the bow with arrows
Burials in stone lined chambers with mounded roofs often with lots of grave goods (some imported from distant places).
Archaeological Culture C has the following attributes:
Settlements of 10-15 permanent domestic structures
Agriculturalist with wheat and oats as the dominant crops
Minimal evidence of animal husbandry (sheep and goats) but significant hunting of wild game
Use of red undecorated pottery
Grain storage in stone enclosures
Bronze swords and bows
Inhumations (full body burials) with at least a few grave goods (only rarely imported from far away)

Develop a Research Question (or Questions) From one culture to the next, body ad

Develop a Research Question (or Questions)
From one culture to the next, body adornment is part of human expressiveness. During the last decade or two, tattooing has becoming increasingly common in many industrialized modern countries. Do you have any curiosity about why that is or how tattoos embody multiple meanings in our culture? Think about some questions you might like to answer in this research.
Examples of research questions include: Rite of Passage: Are tattoos being used as rites of passage for people? What kind of major life events are being commemorated by tattoos?
Social Stigma: Is stigma affecting the placement of tattoos to make them less visible? Are certain professions still known to be stigmatizing tattoos? What kind of evidence of stigma do people with tattoos still face?
Commemoration: What kinds of tattoos are people getting to commemorate people, events, deaths, etc.? What kind of symbolism is commonly used or is each piece idiosyncratic?
Regret: Who is more likely to regret a tattoo later in life? What is the story behind getting the tattoo that is being regretted? What about the tattoo is now undesirable (Did the meaning change? Did its appearance change? Did a person adopt a different religion? Has a person faced stigma due to the tattoo?)? Are there plans to revise or remove that tattoo?
Conduct Interviews
Interview five people 18 years old or older (if you have tattoos, you may include your own self-interview, but you need to interview 5 additional people) who have tattoos and write an essay discussing your chosen research questions, but also why they chose to have a tattoo, how they decided where to have it placed, what the tattoo symbolizes, how different people react to their tattoo, whether/how it affects their social standing, etc. Are certain kinds of tattoo images particularly popular among your peers at this time? If so, why might that be? Look at (ask about) the symbolism as well as the social aspects of getting and having that tattoo. You will need to submit your interview notes as part of this assignment. Be sure to take good notes of your interviews, including demographic information (age, gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, educational level, profession, etc.) and pictures, if necessary. When interviewing people, ask for their permission to write about the interview in a college paper. If a consultant wishes to remain anonymous, give him or her a pseudonym that is indicated in quotes. For example, “According to “Marsha”, a 45-year-old Caucasian single mother…”
Putting it All Together
Taking your data gathered from your interviews, write an essay exploring your research questions. You will want to present data and quotes from your interview to support your discussions and analysis. Type your answers into a word processing file, they should be at least 4 full pages (not including raw notes).
Relevant Course Objective: Articulate in writing the complexity of human social organization.
Formatting instructions: All assignments need to follow MLA formatting. This includes the name and title block (See instructions for how to format your first page here (Links to an external site.)). Use MLA in-text citations (Links to an external site.) and Works Cited (Links to an external site.) (if needed). Other formatting instructions about spacing, margins, etc. are in the syllabus.

Answer the following questions:

Culture has been well demonstrated in chimpanzees, but has also been observed in other primates, as well as nonprimate animals. Find and describe an example of cultural behavior in other nonhuman primates (besides chimpanzees) or nonprimate animals. Briefly research cultural behaviors that have been reported in a nonhuman animal species (choose one). Answer the following questions:
What species did you choose or were you assigned? Is your species a primate? Another mammal? A bird?
What cultural behaviors have been reported in your species?
Why are these behaviors considered cultural?

Why don’t you agree?

LaurenPeters_Pangburn.pdf
FOR FULL CREDIT –
Each answer must be a minimum of 7 sentences.
Each answer must reflect critical/thoughtful thinking
Each answer must have supporting evidence, reason, logic – elucidated, or clearly explained. 1. Please summarize three claims that Lauren Peters makes about what she believes in. Give me one claim she makes per each 1/3 of the episode. So one claim from the beginning, one from the middle, and one from the end of the podcast. 2. What evidence does she provide, in general, throughout the podcast? What kind of evidence is it (for example, is it anecdotal, scientific, statistics, etc.)? How does she present it?
3. Do you think her evidence/reasoning is enough to justify belief in her claims? Why or why not?
4. For this question – I argue that all of her claims are beliefs that are not justified enough in order to claim that they are true. I can explain if you’d like, just come talk to me for more information. Regardless, for this question answer one of the following:
a. If you agree with me, then here is your question: Why is this stuff dangerous? Why is it potentially dangerous that so many people people follow these types of beliefs and actually follow her “teachings”? How can we educate people to be more skeptical of claims like the one Ms. Peters makes. OR
b. If you don’t agree with me, here is your question. Why don’t you agree?
5. Why is skeptical and critical thinking so important with any type of claims, but claims that are similar to this theme (even if you agree with Ms. Peters)? Explain your answer.

Describe the parts of ardi’s (ardipithecus ramidus) skeleton that showed evidence of bipedalism, and the portions that were more apelike.

You do not need to rewrite the questions, but please number your answers. Remember–ONLY use material from the above sources. Any use of outside sources will result in no credit. Questions:
1. According to the DNA comparisons discussed in the “Origins of Humans” approximately when did the split between the human and the chimpanzee lineage occur?
2. What specific parts of the skeleton are most important in assessing whether a fossil form was bipedal?
3. Describe the parts of Ardi’s (Ardipithecus ramidus) skeleton that showed evidence of bipedalism, and the portions that were more apelike. According to this evidence, how did Ardi move around?
