A 4-6 page APA format paper on the Spokane Falls in Spokane Washington. This is for an Anthropology 100 class. Please see assignment instructions below.
The goal of this assignment is to observe an 'archaeological site' as an anthropologist would. The student will analyze their observations in terms of themes from the subfield of archaeology such as how it helps frame our understanding of how we can learn more about the human past by studying and interpreting material culture.
Motel of the Mysteries is a well-known book among archaeologists (see basic description in Smith, 2009). This humorous (now sadly out of print) book takes a look at how an archaeologist of the future might look at a late 20th-century roadside motel. While our artifacts make sense to us, how might they preserve and be interpreted by future archaeologists? In this Assignment, we will explore this idea.
