"Always remember that you are absolutely unique, just like everybody else." (Margaret Mead)

How is our culture, language, religion and family dynamic explained by our physiology, genetic make-up and diet?

Consider how the study of anthropology can help us to understand other cultures and impact upon our attitude towards education, politics and religion. For example, discover how a study by James Cowles Prichard (1786–1848) contributed to the abolition of slavery and brought about a dramatic change in racial classification.

Study artefacts, conduct research, go on a guided tour of a museum or take a trip further afield, accompanied by an expert.  Or simply read together, watch films and discuss this fascinating subject which teaches us about ourselves, and what makes us human.
