Case Study #3

Analysis of Your Favorite Fossil Find
Locality / Region

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

  1. For this paper you should describe and discuss the major characteristics of your favorite archaeological site, locality / region, or major fossil find. In your discussion be sure to indicate why you think the site, locality / region, or major fossil find is theoretically important.

  2. This should be a different topic from the one you did for Case Study #1

    1. Site Examples: Aramis, Chauvet Cave, Hadar, Koobi Fora, Kromdraai, La Chapelle-aux-Saints, La Ferrassie, Laetoli (Tanzania), Lascaux, Makapan, Olduvai Gorge, Omo Valley (South Ethiopia), Spy, Sterkfontein, Swartkrans, West Turkana, Zhoukoudian Cave

    2. Locality / Region Examples: Afar Triangle, Australia, Beijing, Dordogne Region (France), East African Rift Valley, Gombe Stream, Israel, Java, Olduvai Gorge

    3. "Fossil Find" Examples: KNM-ER-1470, " Lucy," "Little Foot," Madeleine, "Luiza," "Ötzi, The Iceman" (Italian), "The Iceman" (Canadian), Qafzeh, the "Taung Child," "The Millinium Man"

  3. Also try getting more information from JSTORE, elelctronically stored journals, and look for other items from the UMD Electronic Reference Collection.

  4. For this Case Study -- and all of the Case Studies -- you may use traditional library materials, and, where appropriate, interviews and videotapes. So have a look at one or more of the daily papers to see what they're reporting.

  5. On-line Resources which might be helpful include:
    1. Infotrac
    2. JSTOR
    4. Soc-Anth-Hum/Cl-Cultural Studies Search Engines and Reference Works
    5. UMD On-Line Library Resources
    6. General Reference Works
    7. Books and Manuscripts On-Line

  6. Use the PCforum to discuss your paper with others in the class.

  7. Due Week 14.
    (Unexcused late Case Study papers will result in a loss of 2% of the final course grade.)

  8. Length: 5 - 6 well-written pages

  9. Criteria for Grading College Writing

  10. Suggestion: Don't put off the Web Assignments. The web doesn't always work when you want it to.

  11. When you write anything you should consider audience, purpose, and your personal style. For your case studies, your audience should be your classmates in this class. (Do not write your college papers to the professor as audience.)

  12. Information about Handing in Your Paper

  13. See the "Preparing the Final Draft" section of the Sociology - Anthropology - Criminology - Humanities / Classics Writing Guide to see the details of what your Case Study report should look like when you hand it in. Basically, it should look like the model of the first paper.
