The primary goal of this exercise is for the student to further examine evolution from the perspective of two subfields in anthropology.  The all-encompassing nature of evolution will be illustrated, and students will have the opportunity to explore the holistic nature of anthropology.




Anthropologists study many different aspects of humanity in order to fully understand the diversity of the human species.  One of these aspects concerns our development as a species, both physically and culturally.  For the assignment, the student will first discuss and investigate evolution as viewed by physical anthropology, and then the student will investigate and discuss evolution from one other subfield – cultural, linguistic, or archaeological.


In a 3-5 page written assignment, answer the following questions.


1) Define evolution (use textbook and/or Lesson).  

2) Discuss what evolution is in terms of physical anthropology.  Discuss how physical anthropologists examine/investigate evolution 

3) Find at least one outside source related to your answer for Question 2 (e.g. the genome project for DNA).  Conduct original research, do not use the genome project because that example is given in class.  Describe the source and how it connects physical anthropology with the study of evolution.

4) Choose a second subfield of anthropology (cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, or archaeology).

5) Discuss how an anthropologist in this second subfield studies evolution.

*Remember, evolution can apply to both physical and societal changes, so things like language and customs can evolve just as much as bodies and brains can.

6) Discuss how an anthropologist from your chosen subfield examines/investigates evolution (e.g. an archaeologist may look at how tools have changed through time, and what has caused that change).

7) Find at least one outside source related to your answer for Question 6.  Conduct original research, do not use tool evolution because that example is given in class.  Describe the source and how it connects your second subfield of anthropology with the study of evolution.

8) Discuss how the study of evolution between physical anthropology and your chosen subfield compare and contrast.

9) Conclude by discussing one new piece of information you learned about evolution.
