Anthropology has also aimed at evaluating social problems with anthropological data, perspectives, theories, and techniques at the societial level and aiming to produce, evaluate, and solve social problems. In light of all this information, we can say that anthropology is a scientific discipline that introduces man, man to every direction. Anthropology is the most basic science that widened the point of view of human beings through the interdisciplinary field of study, gives the ability to evaluate natural events from prejudices, and answers the questions of why, why, when, how, and where. Archeology means “Ancient science” with the word meaning. The archaeological study of all kinds of artifacts that have remained everyday from ancient times is in the study area. Pottery includes minerals and terracotta figurines, weapons, tools, coins, cut stones, all kinds of things that people use daily, ornamental items, jewelry seals, and bulls archeology’s small works of art. This book is an entryway to start looking at the old practices and rethink of them for the fast approaching future.

On Trepanation and Human Nature

Perspectives from Paul Broca to the Present

Many thousands of years ago, prehistoric humans cut holes in each other's skulls. For a century and a half, scholars have been arguing about why. Some believe that the procedure was a primitive medical operation; others argue that it served a ceremonial or religious purpose. What is at stake is the fundamental nature of human thinking: "Was prehistoric man essentially scientist or priest?" The debate has played out against a backdrop of territoriality, aggression, xenophobia, rapacity and delusion that suggests a less flattering view of human cognition and motivation. On Trepanation and Human Nature: Perspectives from Paul Broca to the Present is an essay in verse that traces the history of this debate, and considers contemporary cases of skull-boring. The poem is also an examination of the myriad and often bizarre ways we communicate, incorporating found language from many domains: anthropology, medicine, legalese, contemporary self-help literature, and the manifestos of the dubiously sane.
