Archaeology 2-3 paper.


A variety of articles that you can use to write the paper, the articles are attached.

Plagiarism. It is imperative that you write in your own words! If you closely paraphrase a sentence provide the page number, and if you cite something directly from the text use quotes and provide the page number. Do not copy sections of the article or the text into your essay – write in your own words.
