General Information:
Anthropologists study the origin, development, and behavior of humans. They examine the ways of
life, languages, archaeological remains, and physical characteristics of people in various parts of the
world. They also examine the customs, values, and social patterns of different cultures, often
through comparative analyses. Some anthropologists study current human concerns, such as
overpopulation, warfare, and poverty, while others study the prehistory of Homo sapiens, including
the evolution of the human brain. Anthropologists usually concentrate on one of four subfields:
Sociocultural anthropologists study the customs, cultures, and social lives of groups. Linguistic
anthropologists investigate the history of, role of, and changes to, language over time in various
cultures. Biological anthropologists research the evolution of the human body, look for the earliest
evidences of human life, and analyze how culture and biology influence one another. Physical
anthropologists examine human remains found at archaeological sites in order to understand
population demographics and factors, such as nutrition and disease, that affected these populations.
Anthropologists are analytical and observant.
