Based on your knowledge of the garbage assemblage, what can you learn about the person(s) who created it and how might this be used to draw conclusions about their lives (e.g., diet, age, socioeconomic status, gender etc.)?
Here are some things to think about:
can you tell where the garbage came from (e.g., kitchen, office, bathroom)?
what can you tell about the people (gender, age, diet, economic standing)?
what in the garbage specifically informs you of these things?
was anything missing from the garbage, would these missing items have provided additional important information?
if you know anything about the person(s) who produced the garbage, do you think the garbage that you sampled was misleading in
What garbage assemblage?
