Methods of Anthropological Research
  • Field work- describes observable facts found on
    sites, where first hand observation is possible-
    Again what would Physical Anthropologists look
    for?
  • Thus field work observes facts and establishes
    connections among facts which allows for making
    generalizations based on evidence

7
Methods of Anthropological Research
  • Participant Observation-When one lives among a
    culture, tries to become one of them- does not
    study the culture from research or by doing
    surveys
  • Cross-Cultural Comparison- An examination of the
    varied ways a certain aspect of human life is
    treated in different cultures

    accomplishments over history

    encourage tolerance or acceptance and promote
