ANTH2003 - Palaeoanthropology
The course provides a thorough introduction to the biological evidence for human evolution, as well as to the way in which this evidence is analysed and interpreted. The anatomy of various hominid species is discussed from the perspective of reconstructing human evolutionary history and the evolution of human behaviour. We will also relate fossil discoveries to the archaeological record and reconstructions of environment, ultimately arriving at a synthetic view of human origins.
