Ethnographic Research (Investigation Type)

This is research that focuses on the systematic description and analysis of cultural systems or lifeways. These studies of contemporary people and cultures rely heavily on participant observation as well as interviews, oral histories, and review of relevant documents. Ethnoarchaeological studies are a subset of this kind of research that investigate correlations between traditional contemporary cultures and patterns in the archaeological record.
