3.4 Skim-read initial key texts/resourcesWhich of the resources so far are worth keeping?
All first hand sources will be valuable. I have always had a real pull to Native American and Pagan art/symbols so this will all be really good.
I found some great books at work that I have borrowed to photocopy from. The museums/galleries I will visit once the research project is actually approved as I am only 4 weeks away from the summer holidays, so if I do go forward with this topic as my project I will then collect and collate all first hand sources.
What's missing from the research so far?
I think the 'effect' that these symbols have on modern day humans would be an important part of this project and therefore it may benefit from a questionnaire or inquiry. I could create this and take it with me to the museums etc so that I can get the responses from the people who actually work daily with these artifacts as well as giving them out to those around me for an 'every day person's' viewpoint.
What do I need to add?
A questionnaire to establish why/how totems/symbols etc effect how a human feels.
