History focuses on the study of the past as it is described in ancient documents. The facts that usually make part of history books require the participation of many historians after observations and investigations about the topics to make a consensus. Historians, based on patterns will usually have a specific point of view. These point of views usually have really crucial information that must be confirmable in order to ensure their validity, usually varying depending on the side the historian takes when writing the story. Most of the time historians are tested by the use of the Historical Method.
“ Burial of the dead is the act of placing the corpse of a dead person in a tomb constructed for that purpose” (Joshua J.Mark). Historians and archeologists contribution to our understanding of Ancient Egyptian burial practices is quite significant, especially the discovery of Tutankhamun`s Tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. Historians and archaeologists investigate the past to produce information to learn about times before we lived and try to understand how people lived. Through artefact analysis and examining the historical and archaeological evidence we are provided with knowledge about ancient burial practices. Various archaeologists and Historians have helped us gain knowledge about Ancient Egyptian burial practices.
Kagan claimed that “humanities are an understanding of human reactions to events and the meanings humans impose on experience as a function of culture, historical era, and life history”(4). Taking history as an example, it is the reflection of human civilization trajectory, recording and explaining a series of human activities, as Easter Islands statues being no exception. Consequently, the time, the context, historical backgrounds come into the view of historians: when were these large statues built, who built them? For what reason? What was going on in region when this was created?
Simply put, through fossils we get see what species existed on earth and when they existed. For instance, if a fossil of an animal were to be found it would be closely studied and compared to other known species with the use of a dichotomous key, scientific processes, and the six kingdom system. Through dating techniques scientists
Also, bodies are an important part of DVI for Forensics team. However, the anthropologist have the major knowledge in this subject field, so, the Forensics anthropologist are suitable for this job exactly as Mundorff says (2012), "Most forensic anthropologists, like forensic archaeologists, have extensive field experience in searching for, mapping, and recovering human remains. These skills make forensic anthropologists valuable in the initial assessment of any disaster scene." (pg.131-139) Therefore, the knowledge and the working experience is important for the Forensics team, and it promote the value of Forensics anthropologist in the Forensics team. In conclusion, unknown victims should be identified by Forensic team especially Forensic anthropologists, so they play an important role in the Forensic team because of the technological skills of rebuilding faces or determining fingerprints are helpful in Disaster Victim Identification (DVI).
These funerary practices have proven to reflect the daily aspects of the ancient Egyptian culture. Funerary art has contributed towards contemporary understandings of Ancient Egyptian culture. Funerary art is a material aspect, it can be used to determine non material and material beliefs. Analysing the ancient Egyptian funerary practices has provided an immense amount of information leading to the understanding of their
There are many ways to remember an event or person such as a scrapbook, however monuments are a brilliant way to symbolize the importance of a person or event. Usually when a monument is being constructed, the agency or group feels it is necessary to memorialize the person or special event that is a role model to our society. To construct a predominant monument, one should consider the location, architecture, and the purpose behind the idea of establishing a monument. One of the most important component, an agency or group should determine when building a monument, is the location. The statue of Christopher Columbus in Riverside Park in Pennsylvania (Source B) shows the approbation when he discovered America.
900, with the rise of ceremonial objects, (Judge, 4), is when the most known evidence of Mesoamerican trade and influence is shown. Research upon 33 macaw skeletons excavated in Pueblo Bonito, has shifted some of the previous thoughts on the timeline of their presence and use in the ceremonial context at Chaco Canyon. Originally attributed to the peak of Chaco, (A.D. 1040-1100), the use of macaw feathers and the keeping of macaws has been pushed back to the beginning of this rise, A.D. 900. (Powell,1), (Watson, 1). Within the surrounding cultures and including Chaco Canyon, more than 400 total remains of macaws have been excavated in the region, (Watson, 1).
Program will be the history of architecture and landscape architecture. This option will offer me a detailed study program that will prepare me to carry out research and teach in the relevant disciplines. The program focusses on architecture through different historic times as well as on the historic cultures, while especially emphasizing on understanding landscapes or buildings along with their designers in history as intricate and interconnected wholes that incorporate meaning, culture, function, tectonics and aesthetics. The PhD program in history of architecture and landscape architecture mainly focusses on understanding structural designs and their historical contexts over time. New designs have been adopted since the onset of architecture, and thus, with the concentration of a history of architecture, new phenomenon and innovations are realized that would help in further explanation and address of other necessities in the same sector.
A research document entitled ‘The Sawmilling Industry in Trinidad’ by Suzan Dillion and Cynthia P. Lowe published in 1988, outlines a brief history of the development of the industry in Trinidad. It also gives statistics based on the geographical location of sawmills and information on workers such as the average age of an employee and number of person per sawmill. The Sawmill Act, chapter 66:02, as amended by Act 24 of 1999 (laws of Trinidad and Tobago) gives a definition of the sawmilling
