What was the outcome of the Great Compromise during the framing of the Constitution?
The Great Compromise was the result of a massive argument within the Constitutional Convention in which representatives from "large states" were attracted to the use of the Virginia Plan - a plan which called for Congressional representation to be decided on population and, thus, gave states with large populations in the South an advantage over those in the North - and representatives from "small states" were attracted to the New Jersey Plan - a plan which called for Congressional representation to be decided by a solid, equal number and gave small states an equal advantage with large states. The Great Compromise decided to merge the plans, giving population representation within the House of Representatives and Equal Representation within the Senate. This is why we have always had 100 representatives in the Senate (two representatives per state) and why the number of representatives within the House has always been representative of the population within that state (1 representative per 30,000 people).

What are the details (when, where, what it's made of) of the Warka Vase, and why was it an important find within the field of Art History?
The Warka Vase is a three foot tall alabaster container used to hold sacrificial items for the gods. It was created between 3,200 and 3,000 B.C.E. in what is now Uruk, Iraq. It is important in the field of Art History because it is one of the first seen religious narratives from this time period and depicts sacrificial offerings to the gods with the use of Hierarchy of Scale and a traditional headdress to define the god within the registers.
What are the names of the four sub-fields of Anthropology? What is the possible fifth field and why is it not considered an official field of anthropology?
Cultural Anthropology, Biological (or physical) Anthropology, Archaeology, and Linguistic Anthropology. The fifth field is Applied Anthropology and it is not an official field because it is highly contested within the four current fields, as Applied Anthropology is used within all four and does not have a defined line of difference between the other fields.
