  • Signifance Of Anthropology And Archaeology - 1,521 words
    Anthropologists and Archaeologists Anthropologists and archaeologists have influenced our lives in so many ways. They have taken us back to our most humble beginnings. They have given us an awareness of just how far we have come through the centuries. Archaeology is the investigating of life by unearthing and interpreting the objects left behind by earlier peoples and cultures, dating back to prehistoric times. Anthropology is the scientific study of hominids, their physical features, development, and behavior. Anthropology is broken into two parts: physical and sociocultural. Physical is concerned with human evolution and biology and the study of primates. Sociocultural anthropology investi ...

    The use of hallucinogenic plants dates back thousands of years. Over the years, many different cultures and civilizations have used them for different purposes. The common belief that similarities exist between cultures that rely upon the use of herbal hallucinogens is greatly exaggerated. The cultural variables between these cultures are often so significant that the only major similarity between them is the fact that they use hallucinogens. The common generalization by society that every culture that uses hallucinogens must be similar can be proven false by comparing the Australian Aborigines and the Navaho Peyote Cult. Before the two cultures and their use of hallucinogenic plants can be ...

In any event, peyotism is strongly look down upon by a majority of Navahos, yet the members of the Peyote Cult still continue to practice. The fact that the Peyote Cult is only a small division of a larger culture also provides a distinct difference between them and the Aborigines. There is no division among the Aborigines over plant usage because their entire culture accepts the use of hallucinogenic plants, which is unlike the Navahos. The hallucinogenic plant used most by the Australian Aborigines is Duboisia Hopwoodii, also known ...

  • Anthropology - 734 words
    All living beings have some way or another to communicate with each other of the same species. From plants to mammals, each one can communicate to each other. What makes humans both unique and special is the fact that we have the ability to teach others through both written and verbal communication. This is how we pass what is known as culture from one generation to another. In my essay I will explore if there is a link between language, culture, and how the world views other cultures. Humans are the only creature that has what we call culture. Culture is what is passed on from one generation to another via language. It is a set of agreed upon rules or laws that regulate the society and how ...

    To present all of the behaviors of chimpanzees in one paper is virtually impossible. So, I am going to attempt to present only certain major behaviors such as hunting and gathering to sharing and caring in the following paragraphs. There are many interesting subtleties to the chimpanzee that the average person does not know about. It was first believed that the chimpanzee was a vegetarian. But, after many years of trivial research, it was clear that meat is and was a natural part of this animals diet. Now, of course comes that part on how the chimpanzee gets that Although chimpanzees can and do hunt alone, they often form larger hunting parties consisting of more than ten adult males, plus f ...

  • Essay From Anthropology Examination - 873 words
    Archaeology is a similar job to anthropology. Both study the various different cultures through out the world. The major difference is where their information is gathered from. Anthropologist get most of their info from living people and their skeletal remains. Where as an archaeologist finds the artifacts left behind. They gather these artifacts by excavation and are able to tell us a lot about our ancestors. Certain artifacts or sites can tell us all sorts of things such as the type of government, human behavior, how the culture ran itself, social organization, and especially the contact between other groups around the world. All this does not come without its problems. Dig sites (a term u ...

  • Anthropology Of Neandrethals - 1,596 words
    Personally, I think that I am a Neanderthal. Of course, we all know that that is almost impossible. However, what if there is just the smallest possibility? Neanderthal man supposedly became extinct almost 30,000 years ago, yet the possibility exist that Neanderthal man may be living among us. The anthropological record is full of similar being with parallel lines of evolution. In many respects, the ancestors of man have, at one point, lived with at least one other evolutionary member. Having that in mind, why would it not be possibly for Neanderthals to still co-habitat with modern man at this age in time? One morning almost 300,000 years ago, the sun arose to a new epic in earths history. ...

  • The Anthropology Student - 663 words
    Crayfish tails in tarragon butter, galantine of rabbit with foie gras, oxtail in red wine, and apple tartelletes. The patient had this rich meal and complained of "liver upset" (crise de foie). Why a liver ache? I always associate indigestion with a stomach ache. In studying French culture in my Evolutionary Psychology class, I learned that when experiencing discomfort after a rich meal, the French assume their liver is the culprit. Understanding and dealing with the minor sometimes major cultural differences is a necessity in our shrinking world and diverse American society. Anthropology has prepared me to effectively communicate with an ethnically diverse population. My science classes, ...

  • Anthropology 2- Extra Credit Assignment - 505 words
    STATION 1: Fossil 1 displays characteristics of Australopithecus aethiopicus of West Lake Turkana, Kenya. This skull shows the obvious characteristics of a very sharp sagittal crest along the top of the skull, a very wide skull in the cheek area, and an extremely prognathic lower skull and jaw area. The cranial capacity also appears to be smaller, suggesting that it is of the earlier hominids. Fossil 2 shows eyebrow ridges and a slight sagittal crest consistent with Homo erectus. The most defining characteristic, however, is the presence of nuchal torus, a projection of bone at the back of the skull where muscles are attached to hold the head up, suggesting a consistently bipedal creature. F ...

  • Sociology: Anthropology, Identity And Cinema - 798 words
    Within the course of this research, we will elaborate on the meaning of the notion of acting normal based on the following three films: American Beauty, Crying Game, and Brazil. We will see what the intents of the filmmakers are, how the notion of acting normal is defined and analyzed in various literature, and what new points the filmmakers come up with. Before starting the discussion, it would be useful to illustrate how postmodernism is related to the movies at issue here, because the notion of acting normal will be discussed here in the light of postmodernism. Postmodernism is known as a broad social and philosophical movement that questions the rationality of human action. It also quest ...

  • Anthropology Of Religion - 764 words
    In the nineteenth century, the anthropologists viewed religion as an archaic mode of thought and action standing behind the modern programs of science, law, politics, and education that would one day drop away. No anthropologists can say that with certainty today, though problems of definition remain, since religion reaches into virtually every corner of human activity. Fundamentally in anthropology the focus of the analysis is generally ethnographic. In order to define the anthropology of religion some writers applied evolutionary theory to the study of religion, assuming that stages of material "advancement" corresponded with those of a spiritual nature. The theory of animism appeared as t ...

  • Anthropology - 1,105 words
    I looked up and gasped when I saw a dozen burly, naked, filthy, hideous men staring at us down the shafts of their drawn arrows! Immense wads of green tobacco were stuck between their lower teeth and lips making them look even more hideous, and strands of dark- green slime dripped or hung from their noses, that is how Napoleon A. Chagnon described his first encounter with the Yanomamo people, one of the most primitive tribes on the planet. Yanomamo were practically unknown to the outside world before the 1960s, when Chagnon traveled to the wild lands of Brazil and Venezuela to live among Yanomamo people. His writings on that experience, plus films based on numerous visits, made the Yanomamo ...

  • Anthropology/archaeology - 2,138 words
    In all the tomes of history, there were civilizations significant in their economic and cultural achievements. To begin conversation about those unique representatives of pristine periods of human development, it is worthy to warn about the limited knowledge that we possess about them. It is also hard to identify any boundary between larger civilizations or to tell where or when one begins and the other ends. All of the pristine civilizations, societies and cultures and also religions experienced transformation over time, that is change from one time to another. Like a flowing river, it is never the same from one moment to the next. It looks like it is difficult to see clear picture of polit ...

  • Colonialism - 1,934 words
    Colonialism has often spread to areas where it is economically valuable for the colonizer to develop. South America was one of these places. First came the Spanish for gold, then for rubber. As colonization took place two cultures met, thinking they were opposites, but in reality they were very much connected to one another, their histories were now tied together. In considering the question of how Indians have developed their healing practices and spiritual beliefs as a reaction to colonization, there are a number of areas we must explore. First, we will discuss how Indian and white cultures have integrated one another to the point where certain beliefs coexist or blend together. Secondly, ...

  • Caries - 2,372 words
    ... d warming of climate where there is an increase in the growth of plant material and plant foods. This change would have promoted a growth in subsistence farming, at the very least. This would have increased the amount of plant carbohydrates and thus there was an increase in the occurrence in evidence of caries. Again in the Mesolithic there is further warming in the surrounding climate to the point where an even greater amount of plant food harvest is attainable for human consumption. Frayer found that for the Mesolithic, there was a negative correlation between rates of caries and latitude. This was the case where skeletal assemblages from northern sites continually show a decrease in c ...

  • City - 1,332 words
    Cities exist for many reasons and the diversity of urban form and function can be traced to the complex roles that cities perform. Cities serve as centers of storage, commerce, and industry. The agricultural surplus from the surrounding country hinterland is processed and distributed within the city. Urban areas have also developed around marketplaces, where imported goods from distant places could be exchanged for the local products. Throughout history, cities have been founded at the intersections of transportation routes, or at points where market goods must shift from one mode of transportation to another such as river or ocean ports as well as railways. Cities are also sites of enormous ...

The female subjects of the study are as equally marginalized as their male counterparts. However, the fact of their gender disenfranchises them further from the mainstream societies and its benefits. It is noted than less than one-third of the impoverished mothers of El Barrio receive public assistance. Female heads of impoverished households must supplement their meager checks in order to keep their children alive and thus are likely to engage in the informal economy though in not the obviously illegal ventures of many ...

  • In The Shadow Of Man - 1,800 words
    In this paper I am going to discuss how anthropology is a science. I am also going to explain how Jane Goodall is a scientist with her works with chimpanzees, and how that is known as primatology. I will also look at the order primates in correspondence with Jane Goodalls book on primates, specifically the chimpanzee. Anthropology is a science; it has four aspects in which you can study. Anthropology takes a look at humankind and with its subdiciplines you can break down individual societies into four parts. Physical anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology, and cultural anthropology; allows you to break down specific things in a culture, past, present, and to make predictions abou ...
