It seems to me like you are being asked how the European archeologists' attitudes and cultural beliefs influence their interpretations of their findings. Are they being as objective as they can? Are they looking at what they find and interpreting it through modern eyes?

Pay particular attentioin to the Europeanization of the ancient peoples and archaeological cultures being investigated. Discuss the political and historical and implications of the various team's leader's approaches and assumptions.

 

How much of the lead archaeologist's approach is interpretive and how much is based on "what's on the ground?" What does this tell you about interpretation, point of view, and archaeology as "empirical?"
