    Can you make the link to the photo ‘active’? Also – the definitions posted at your two citations don’t seem to correspond with your definition – are you forgetting to list another website that you looked at?

      The assignment was to create a definition in your own words so I looked at a few definitions and thought of one that melded them together. Those two links are the main definitions I looked at. Here is another: http://www.answers.com/topic/ethnology

        Right, melding them into your own definition was the right thing to do – but you need to cite all the sources you looked at, not just some. The 2 you listed originally talked about creating laws and studying human history and divisions, not the things you mentioned in your definition. Thanks for adding the other link.
