anthropology writing 2 32

Your answers should be approximately 700-1000 words each (1-2 single-spaced pages). Essays should be well-structured, edited for spelling and grammar, and properly cited (bibliography is NOT included in your word/page count). Excellent essays will draw on a range of class lectures and readings and illustrate their points with specific examples. It is strongly recommended that you read through the grading rubric before writing your answer. While you may choose to integrate outside material in your answer, there is no expectation that you do so and your answers should focus on course content.

Question 2 (20 points)
Compare change over time in the Pacific Northwest (from the early to late Holocene) with change over time in eastern North America (early use of domesticates through the beginning of the Mississippian). In what ways are societies in both regions dynamic? What continuities in cultural practice do you observe?
Note: for this question you should focus on general characteristics of Mississippian societies- we do not expect or require a detailed discussion of Cahokia. In general, be sure your answers are balanced and not too focused on any one phase from either region.
