1. Why do you think head-hunting and head-shrinking, the activities of small tribes of tropical rainforests, send shivers down the spines of those in the so-called civilised countries while this does not occur when they carry on the same activities towards their own kind?
For instance, in England, when Charles II reclaimed the crown for his family, he exhumed the body of Oliver Cromwell, who had his father, Charles I, beheaded, and had Cromwell's head removed from the body and placed atop the Tower of London. After Henry VIII had Sir Thomas More executed, he ordered his head placed atop the Tower of London for a month, until More's daughter Margaret Roper retrieved it.
2. On what grounds does anthropology and ethnography attract the attention of the civilised countries? Why do you think anthropology enjoys a far greater popularity in Europe and the USA than it does in Russia?
3. Which do you think would rather be adopted by savage tribes during their contact with civilised world: fire-arms or a variety of simple games and dances?
4. Do you think this story could actually take place? Why?
