DescriptionAnthropology, the study of humankind, is an inter-disciplinary field with four main subdivisions that range across science, social science, and the humanities: archaeology, linguistics, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology.

From the earth, archaeologists recover material, human, and environmental remains in order to interpret the cultures of past societies. Linguistic anthropologists study comparatively the ways in which language and other media shape social life. Biological anthropologists investigate human physical origins, growth, and development in relation to environmental, genetic, and sociocultural factors. Cultural anthropologists work with living human groups and individuals throughout the world, recording their ways of life and beliefs (ethnography) and analyzing and interpreting their findings with a view to understanding and explaining similarities and differences in human behaviour.
