Prompt: Since the foundation of anthropology as an academic discipline, a major

Prompt: Since the foundation of anthropology as an academic discipline, a major dimension of cultural anthropology has been to explore and compare the diversity of human groups. For this assignment, select a modern day linguistic and cultural group (other than the Dobe Ju/Hoansi) whose worldviews and cultural practices are substantially different from those in the United States (for example, the Tuareg, the Kalash, the Hmong, the Yoruba, the Quechua, the Inuit, etc.). Using at least two major themes developed in the course (economic systems, kinship and family, political organizations, etc.), explain predominant values and norms associated with this culture, contrast these with similar practices in the United States, and explain how both are increasingly affected by global processes.
This essay must rely on three authored sources pertaining directly to the selected cultural group, including at least two peer-reviewed sources (available on databases such as Academic Search Complete, accessible on the Columbia College library website). You may not use your assigned textbook as a source. These sources should be used in the essay to support your original reflection and should be properly cited in ASA style. This essay must be at least 1,250 words long.
This essay must also be at least 1,250 words long.

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)
