Anthropology Class as Told By Ross Geller

I can't tell you how many times my college experience feels like a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. plotline.  

So, when I walked into my Public History minor's Anthropology/Archaeology requirement last semester, it was like walking into "Professor Geller"'s class all over again.  

No, it wasn't quite palaeontology.  

But was half of what Ross said?

Besides, Ross's reactions fit quite perfectly.  

Like when the professor revealed that, when in the field, you can distinguish between types of pottery by licking it.  

Some of the ethnographies were really sad.  It got upsetting to think about some of these things happening in the world.  

But it was often written off as a cultural difference.  

Not everything made total sense.  

In the end, though, it was hard not to get excited about the concepts.  

And you really didn't want to leave as the semester came to a close.
