eHRAF Archaeology video tutorial debuts

HRAF is pleased to announce our new video tutorial making its debut on YouTube this month. The video is ideal for classroom instructors who plan to teach with eHRAF Archaeology. Showing the video in class is a great way to introduce your students to our database. It is a perfect companion for classroom instruction and presents the main points covered in our live webinars. The video situates archaeology within the four major subfields of anthropology.

Topics covered in the video include:

  • Who are Archaeologists?
  • Archaeology and Cross-Cultural Research
  • Outline of Archaeological Traditions (OAT)
  • Outline of World Cultures (OWC)
  • Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM)
  • Simple Random Sample (SRS)
  • Browsing Traditions
  • Advanced Searches
  • Filtering Options
