SUBJECT TYPE: Archaeology
PROMPT GIVEN FOR ASSIGNMENT TOPIC – Research Paper:
This is a two-part project, presentation, and paper (I have already completed the presentation). So, what should you talk about in your presentation and paper? I’m glad you asked. First off, what is the basic history of the site in question? Where is it, when was it founded, who lived there, how did they live, etc….? In addition to the basic history of the site, while it was an active settlement, you need to also discuss the history of excavation at the site. When was it discovered, how was it discovered, who discovered it, when was it excavated, is it still actively being excavated, what kinds of questions are the archaeologists asking as they try to interpret the site, what has been interpreted and what is still unexplained, etc….? What are the future plans for the site, more excavation, public interpretation, and development? Obviously, these are just suggestions for places to start with your research, feel free to explore additional avenues as they develop in your research.
The paper must be 5 pages long with standard 1” margins, 12-point font and MLA formatted parenthetical citation. The bibliography must also be formatted using MLA format and it must contain at least 8 sources, half of which must be print sources. This bibliography does not count toward the required 5-page length (so, you must actually write 6 pages, one of which is your bibliography).
NOTES FROM CLIENT:
4 out of the 8 sources must be print sources, meaning that the sources must have been published, or in text format prior to being converted to .pdf. Articles that were previously on paper are allowed.
In the files, I upload is the base framework of the research paper I need to write: within it, I briefly outline the paragraphs as well as added a lot of sources. Please search for more if I do not fulfill the print resource requirement.
I am also attaching my PowerPoint presentation for reference for the key points of the paper.
You may need to do additional research on archaeology such as “active settlement” – which essentially means during the time that the Palace was in use.
I’ve attached examples of my own works and research papers in prior years for you to examine and mimic my style.
