Stories of Humanity: Anthropology in North Carolina

Anthropology is the study of humans.  It is a big topic, including everything from basic biology to complex cultures.  The topic is so vast that anthropologists specialize in one of four subfields just to make sense of the diversity within their discipline.  Each of the subfields—biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and anthropological archaeology—have a different focus, and its anthropologists have developed unique methods for investigating humanity.  These investigations take place everywhere, including right here in North Carolina.  In this new permanent exhibit, visitors will learn how anthropologists work together to tell stories of humanity here in our own state.  Admission is free.
