For those still interested in playing along with my students’ efforts, here’s the task: What can your search-fu tell you about this image below?
As before, the questions are…
- What is it?
- What is it made of?
- Where is it from?
- About when was it made?
- Where (probably) was it made?
- Where was it found, and when?
- Where is it now?
- What is its significance?
And actually, I’m going to raise the stakes a little on this one. I’ll leave comments closed on this for a while, say for a week. And the best answer at the end of a week gets a guest blogging spot over the Christmas break. It’s a chance to promote your own blog with a different audience than usual, reach out to a new community, and maybe touch a few new hearts. Woohoo! I hear you cry. A research project that turns into more work! But more work to reach a new audience. And what’s so bad about that?
