Anthropologists, scientists who study humans and their ways of life, are continually finding and interpreting artifacts left by our earliest ancestors. They have helped us understand our origins as well as the intriguing cultures that developed as humans spread across Earth. This volume is a concise introduction to this diverse and fascinating field. Readers will learn of the various branches of anthropology, including archaeology and biological anthropology, and how anthropologists of different disciplines collaborate to shed light on the mysteries of times past. Essential science vocabulary, thought-provoking sidebars, and a variety of STEM topics make this book a must-read for future scientists.
