references that the library has on paper, or ones that are available online. One of the research librarians should be able to help you. You might locate two or three articles and then pick the one you want to work with. If you don't already have a focus, you could log onto the online journal service JSTOR through the library web page. Go to the "search" page, select both the anthropology and archaeology journals to search, type in various words (one in each box), leave them set to search the whole text of the articles, click on "search", and wander through the search results. I suggest using combinations of a region or ancient culture and a subject, but try anything you want. You will have to comb through references that are not all archaeological and many that are not interesting, but gems will eventually turn up. Many will be seemingly unrelated to the search terms, so keep an open mind. They may vary widely in length and difficulty, so check out several before making up your mind. JSTOR is particularly easy because the full text of the articles is online. Here are some ideas to try, but feel free to come up with your own: For regions, cultures, or periods: Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, Harappa, Russia, Europe, China, Japan, Mexico, Maya, Aztec, Peru, Andes, Inka, Amazon, Olmec, Hopewell, Mississippian, Ohio, California, Rome, Greece, Minoan, Zimbabwe, Africa, Greenland, Australia, England… etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
