Sudanese Village: just add demographics

Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Students in geo class will add demographic graphs to their artful representations of a Sudanese village. The model was created to reinforce the perspective gained from watching the PBS documentary Lost Boys of Sudan.

Reading about the Mystery Man of Stonehenge in the August Smithsonian Magazine, I was reminded that most people at one time lived in circular huts. The story about the archer's deluxe burial some 4,300 years ago said the fellow "would have likely encountered a rural setting of round timber houses with conical thatched roofs."
