Evolutionary Anthropology

A research group of the Department of Anthropology.

Evolutionary anthropologists are united by a common interest in applying evolutionary theory to understanding the human species. We put people in evolutionary context by studying the behaviour, ecology, and anatomy of our primate relatives, the evolution of cognitive skills and culture, the fossil evidence for human evolution, and evolutionary influences on the behaviour of modern humans. By integrating evolutionary and socio-cultural perspectives, we aim to provide a uniquely complete and holistic account of the human species.
