ANT 313 - Human Paleontology

(4 credits)
Fossil evidence of hominid evolution and the development of contemporary human origin theories are explored in an historical, ecological, and geochronological framework. Lectures consider benefits and liabilities of analogistic, deterministic, and gender-oriented models posited to explain the evolution of behavioral and anatomical characteristics unique to humans. Laboratory exercises acquaint students with methods used to identify, analyze, and interpret key morphological and behavioral trail complexes which serve as the basis for reconstructing the phylogeny of the Hominidae.
