Archaeology November 3; Essay #1

Essay #1 (short writing assignment)

2-3 pages

We’ve looked at a number of websites and online resources about archaeology in this course, such as this website about the ancient Olympics, this one about Ötzi the Iceman, and some resources at Science Daily. Find a website about archaeology and evaluate it: What is the website about? Who is (are) the author(s)? Is the information that it provides valid and authentic? How does it support that evidence—what sort of sources are used? Who is the target audience?

You may not use a website that we have talked about in class but you can use a website that is about the same topic.
