    aspects of your culture. The “snapshot” and the artifacts will be given to another archeological team to see what they can infer

    about your culture.

    ; For each aspect of culture you will have to have an explanation of how it is represented in the “snapshot” or by an artifact you

    have created.

    Archeology and Artifacts Project: You Be the Archeologist Part Two: Your task is to examine the artifacts and the snapshot you were given to make inferences about the culture they

    represent.

    ; It is time to be the Archeologist. You will need to examine the artifacts and the snapshot you have been given to make

    inferences about the culture. You should include:

    o An inference about each of the universal aspects of culture.

    o The specific clues from the artifacts and the snapshot that led you to make the inference.

    ; Your assignment may be organized in any format that you choose. However, you will need to be prepared to present your

    ideas to the class.
