Thesis: Analysis of The Great Wall of China
Your analysis needs to look at the cultural artifact as an archeologist would, analyzing what it means and how it reflects the cultural values from the era and society in which it was made. Each analysis must include the following sections:
A detailed description of the cultural artifact: what it looks like, how it is put together, how it was made.
Some background of the culture that produced the artifact. Your emphasis is on what the artifact tells us about the culture, not on what course materials or some other history book tells you about the artifact.
A well-argued analysis of what the work tell us about the culture from which it arose using details from the artifact and known information about the culture. You must also use a scholarly article to discuss other theories about the artifact and what it tells us about the culture that created it. Consider what the significance of the work was for the people who first saw/heard/read it.
