Where is the Anthropology?- April 2008

Here are the monthly directions if you have been paying attention or are new to the site and want to play along.  Something that I thought might help in showing the interesting ways that anthropology is all around is to presenting picture of the month. This will be of anthropology importance; a place, activity or a person that has to do with anthropology. I will give a clue a week to give everyone an opportunity to figure out what the picture is and the anthropological importance and how it applies.


clue one:  This photo involves America politically and economically.  This country is very culturally different then typical westernized developed countries, but it is very active with them.  Where is this country and who are the native people?

clue two: In this country, you can find many Americans and a few other westernized people, but there numbers are dwindling over the years.  In this culture, all most all males are dominate, even the male children over females of all ages.  Who are these people and where in the world do they call home?

clue three: The language that the people speak is a form of Turkish, but they so not live in Turkey?  They are a small minority group in their country, but the city they live in, they are the majority.  This country is located near the beginning of human civilization.  Have you been able to guess where the picture is and who these people might be?


clue four: This is a war torn country, which Americans are starting to learn more about, but slowly.  This city has a large building structure that they have called the “castles” but the original purpose of building is unclear. 

Where is this city, what is the name of this city and who are these people?

    Those are all good guess and your close, but sorry to say none of you have guessed the correct nation, but all so close. you’re all get better at guessing.

    Next months should not be so hard, or at lest I do not think so. I will reveal the April picture in May.
