This course introduces students to the evolutionary history of humans, through the study of comparative human anatomy. The focus will be on the musculoskeletal anatomy of humans and their closest living and fossil relatives. Included in the course will be the reconstruction of the dietary, locomotor and social behavior of extinct hominids, such as Australopithecus and earlier forms of Homo. The class will make use of the skeletal and cast collections housed in the Anthropology Department. There will be two practical exams and a cumulative final exam. Five written assignments will be due over the course of the semester. Four of these assignments will be based on exercises performed in a lab setting. The final report will be a description of a “mystery human fossil” given to the student for analysis. Students do not need any college-level prerequisites, but a background in biology or osteology will be an asset.
