Description
Modern humans like ourselves only appear within the last 100,000 to 50,000 years. This course will cover precursors to our species and the origin and dispersal of modern humans. Data will be drawn from paleoanthropology, archaeology, ethnography, and genetics. Evolutionary theory will provide the framework for understanding the data and for generating and testing hypotheses.
