Anthropology Question


Please find attached a version of my paper as it has been worked by me

so far. I am in the process of adding some more material to it and

explaining as per the Prof.’s instructions… why I’ve chosen the object

that I’ve chosen (Hector’s Helmet from Iliad’s Scroll 6) for the alleged

‘Museum exhibit’ that is about to take place…

Please let me know if you need any more information.. I need to add

about 300 words of text and restructure the existing material a little

to make sure I meet the assessment rubric/criteria…


Here are the criteria

Call for advice:

Southside History Museum is excited to announce an upcoming exhibit on
the ancient Greek world, “From Agamemnon to Alexander,” intended for the
Museum’s 50thanniversary
in 2022. SHM is a champion for bringing world heritage to
underrepresented communities without background in subjects like ancient
history. Funded by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the
Humanities, SHM is in the planning stages for acquiring, displaying,
and constructing an exhibit of several objects related to the
archaeology of Greece. The exhibitions committee seeks advice from
experts in the fields of classical archaeology for artifacts to display
that will not only exemplify the chronological range of the intended
exhibit, from later prehistory to the Hellenistic period, but speak to
salient themes of interest to our visitors: politics, gender, empire,
economy, culture, religion, and art. Broadly construed, SHM’s theme
“From Agamemnon to Alexander” will highlight objects that speak to the people behind their use, be they named rulers or unnamed subjects. Each proposal should describe and state the significance of one object that could contribute to the exhibit. SHM invites scholars to submit proposals with the following elements:

  1. An object narrative not to exceed 3,000 words

addition to a brief description of the object and its history, the
narrative should address: 1) the object’s current location and
provenance history; 2) current scholarly interpretations of the object;
3) comparative examples of similar objects in other museums, if
possible, and a critical summary of their presentation; and 4) the
relevance of the object to understanding ancient Greek society and a
justification for including it in our exhibit. The narrative should not
assume specialized knowledge and should be free of jargon.

  1. Bibliography not to exceed one single-spaced page in APA format: (Σύνδεσμοι σε εξωτερική ιστοσελίδα.)

Statements will be evaluated and graded using a rubric of four registers:

  • 30%:
    Statement of significance: how does the student convincingly make an
    argumentative case or justify the significance of the thesis?
  • 30%:
    Use of evidence: how well has the student thought about the evidence
    and used supporting references to bolster the narrative?
  • 30%:
    Structure: how clearly written is the statement? Is it difficult to
    follow, or full of inaccessible language? Does it successfully connect
    the thesis to ancient historical research?
  • 10%: Mechanics: are there few to no typos, or many? Please use spellcheck and proofread your writing before turning it in.

benchmark grade for a solid, competent paper is B+ (89-87). A (100-94)
and A- (93-90) grades are reserved for highly original and compelling
responses with no or very little mechanical or syntactical errors, while
B (86-84) and B- (83-80) consist of solid papers with some areas of
weakness (argument, structure, evidence). C+, C, and C- (79-70) papers
have substantive problems of argument and writing. Failure to turn in
the assignment by the deadline, or evidence ofor dishonesty,
can result in an F (<60).
