Anthropology

From Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia written in simple English for easy reading.

Anthropology is the study of human beings. (In Greek "Anthropos-" means "human", and "-logy" means "study of"). Anthropology is a social science that helps us learn how groups of people are the same, and how they are different in all parts of the world. Anthropologists do research in many places and look at how people live now and how they may have lived in the past (using the study of Archaeology). They research in modern cities, small villages tribes, and in the countryside. They study how these groups of people consider time, space, life, etc.

There are many types of anthropology, such as medical anthropology, urban anthropology, etc. But the four basic types are:

  • Archaeology - The study of things people leave behind, like pottery, stone tools, or anything made or used by humans.
  • Physical Anthropology - The study of human biology, including how people's bodies changed over time (evolution). Physical anthropologists also study non-human primates).
  • Linguistic Anthropology - The study of how people speak and the words they use and how their language developed.
  • Cultural Anthropology - The study of how people live their lives now and how they may have lived in the past. It is also related to sociology.
