Monumental architecture

Monumental architecture Paper instructions:
Monumental architecture is a hallmark of complex societies (chiefdoms and states). Discuss how resources are mobilized for such constructions as well as the ideological messages they convey. Choose an example of a large scale structure from anywhere/anytime in the world that functioned as a symbolic expression of power, prestige, and wealth. Discuss what your example represents and whose interests are promoted by it. Bring in what you have read on leadership and political and religious organization in chiefdoms and states up to now in developing your answer. What reasons can you think of to explain why egalitarian societies (bands and tribes) do not invest in monumental architecture? Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and your own ideas to support your claims. Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length.
