Part of the History/Social Studies Web Site for K-12 Teachers. ARCHAEOLOGY/ANTHROPOLOGY

We tend to look at ourselves and others in our culture (and to other cultures) with a lens that has been twisted and warped by our limited experience and education. The resources available in the sites below should help teachers think and plan on how they can use the global resources of the Internet to make sure that their charges have access to information about the varieties of cultures -- both past and present (See also the "Diversity" sites from the Main Menu). These sites are a start and need the input and feedback from others. Please send your suggestions by E-mail to

Links to "historical information, archaeological research, chronology and links that showcase parts of the site (some with good text descriptions and background information). Archaeologists might choose to visit the site to evaluate how effective the Web could be to "advertise" a site for fund raising purposes. In fact, what we need is a "check off" box on the Frederal Income Tax to make a voluntary contribution to either a political party or some educational institution of our choice. That would send some message to the politicians!

    A popular weekly presented on TV by the Museum for 14 years. "On each What in the World?® program, four or five unidentified objects were presented to a panel of experts who were asked to guess what each piece was, where it came from, how old it was, and how it was used. Objects were selected from storerooms and had never before been seen by the panel. Before the experts guessed, the audience was told what the object was, and, during the course of the program, could watch the thought processes of real --and often fallible!-- anthropologists and archaeologists."

  51. Anthropology Department, The University of Kansas
    World History students (especially Middle and Secondary) might visit the course site information included in the Introduction to Archaeology (ANTH 110/310). Point students in the direction of the information on the origins of agriculture, especially the lifestyle description of hunter-gatherers. The American Indian Ethnobotany Database Page provides students with a search tool to locate foods, drugs, dyes, fibers and other uses of plants (a total of over 47,000 items) by 291 Native American groups. Finally, a visit to Native American Herbal, Plant Knowledge with an assignment to explore and evaluate the extent of achievement in this area. If you plan a field trip in this unit or assign students to collect edible/useful plants or herbs, send them to Chez Marco's Botany Pages. prior to venturing out.. Although designed as a guide for field workers in botony and environmental science, this page could also be used by students and teachers in world history. Units on early man and the development of agriculture could be enriched by visits to the electronic sites on native plants and herbs. For a more "global" approach, visitWorld Food Habits Bibliography.
  52. Students would also learn how the field of history is enriched by the Anthropologist, the ethnobiologist and other scientists. Simple materials collected in a field exercise could be brought into the classroom. I have assigned students to collect rose hips to dry and prepare as a Vitimin "C" drink, or have them collect and assemble a database of information about "free" edible plants used by their parents/grand-parents. If you assign students to do a complete review of the "Botony" site, have them view the visual site map (after all other items on the main menu have been examined) as a lead-in to a lesson on concept mapping. As a final activity (evaluation??) you might have students attack the use of the term "primitive" that was often associated with early man. Processing skill might also be encourage by a discussion of why student researchers often have more questions after a unit of study than at the start. In teaching such units, I have discovered that several issues are often raised: Who did what in pre-agricultural societies - specialization, division of labor and gender issues. How was the vast and growing knowledge preserved and passed on to the next generation? Why would societies that were "expert" at food collecting turn to agriculture, as collecting often takes less time and requires less labor?
