    Ethnography, then, named the process of learning what for the anthropologist was a new and different way of talking, thinking, and acting. When the work was done, a monograph was usually written—a report of this exploration into the community's way of life. One could point to that book and say it was an ‘ethnography’ as well. Which of these is a true statement about anthropologists? Anthropologists’ studies are limited to today’s cultures and societies. Anthropologists study how ancient cultures are similar and different. Anthropologists leave the study of human origins to archaeologists. Anthropologists leave the study of social behaviors to sociologists.

    Like historians and anthropologists who also study people and how they live, sometimes archaeologists talk to living people, or observe them to find out about what life was like in the past. Archaeologists might even ask living people if they know stories or legends about specific locations where people might have lived centuries ago.   Most anthropologists work in universities, where they teach students about anthropology and organize and conduct their own research. They also write essays, reports, and books about the results of their research. The exact nature of the research they do depends upon their area of expertise.
