Course Description
Human evolutionary studies is a composite product of the fieldwork of bothPaleolithic archaeology and human paleontology (or what we refer to as "stonesand bones").  This marriage of two subdisciplines of anthropology produces aunique set of data that is intellectually managed and driven by theorieswithin anthropology as a whole and even beyond -- to fields such as biology,psychology, and primate ethology, as we try to understand the origins oflanguage, culture, and our unique physical characteristics.  In this course,we will jointly discuss and debate the actual evidence of human evolution,describing what the actual evidence is and exploring how far can we take theseinterpretations.
