Anthropology writing

I’m studying and need help with a Writing question to help me learn.

The purpose of this assignment is to give you an opportunity to read and analyze a recent research article from an archaeological journal.

For tips on how to approach reading a scientific article, see the article here: https://violentmetaphors.com/2013/08/25/how-to-read-and-understand-a-scientific-paper-2/ (Links to an external site.)

I have provided a set of articles for you to choose from (see Article Assignment Reading Options in the Week 2 Module), but you can select a different article provided you receive instructor approval. You will use that article to answer the following questions. Answer each question individually; your totalresponse should be at least 650 words.

  1. Be sure to provide a complete citation for the article you have chosen to use at the start of your assignment (5 points).
  2. What questions are the researchers trying to answer with their work? (5 points)
  3. What kinds of data (e.g., pottery, settlement pattern, chemical composition, etc.) do the authors draw on to answer the question? (5 points)
  4. What were the results of the analysis? (5 points)
  5. What new information/knowledge does this article contribute? (10 points)
  6. What unanswered questions does this article raise for you? What do you think would be good directions for future research? (5 points)
