This chapter has detailed five case studies of archaeological field projects that have, in one respect or another, advanced our knowledge in important ways. In this activity you will construct a case study of your own.
To do so, first choose a site. It can be one mentioned in this book, one that is in your local area or state, one that you have visited in the past, or one that you have heard about or come across online.
Once you have selected a site, use the following questions to help develop your case study. You should be able to find much of the information from internet sources and in the library. If you can select a site near where you live you may also be able to get information from a local museum or the site itself.
If you are stuck try looking at the case study of Khok Phanom Di, Thailand, that is discussed in Chapter 13 of your book, for inspiration.
