Biological Anthropology is the study of our evolutionary history, responses to environmental challenges, and human relationship to the other primates. The programme is structured around three themes: Human Origins and Archaeology; Primate Evolution, Behaviour and Conservation; and Human-Environment Interactions. To grasp how humans evolved, students use archaeological techniques to uncover the skeletal remains of our ancestors and they look in a comparative perspective at the behaviour of our primate relatives. Biological anthropologists also study aspects of living human populations such as nutrition, child growth, health, genetics, and adjustment to the environment.
