Welcome to Cornell Anthropology
Sociocultural anthropology considers the social and cultural circumstances of all cultures, from dominant societies to marginalized groups. Archaeology recovers and interprets material traces of past societies and provides historical perspective on recent cultures. Biological anthropology clarifies aspects of the physical diversity of the human species, explores the human fossil record, and studies closely related primate species in comparison to humans.
