Bio. Anthro. 297. Topics in Biological Anthropology.

Section 101 Are My Parents Neandertals?: The Evolution of Modern Humans

Instructor(s): Keith Hunley (khunley@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (NS). (BS). May be repeated for a total of twelve credits.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~khunley/bioanthro_297.htm

Did Neandertals bury their dead because they cared deeply about them or simply because their bodies attracted unwanted predators? How did they survive in the harsh climates of Europe? Could they talk to each other and if so, what might they have said? Were they a different species from us, or, alternatively, are there Neandertals still among us today?

In this class we will look at what it means to be a "Modern Human." Then we will try to determine if and when in the past we crossed this threshold of modernity. We will do so primarily by looking at the bones and tools left behind by Neandertals in Europe over the past 200 thousand years as well as by the group of humans who are supposed to have replaced them.

You will handle reproductions of the ancient bones of these peoples in daily hands-on labs. You will handle the tools they made. By the end of the term you will understand not only what it means to be human, but how we became the way we are today. By learning to ask and answer the right questions, you may gain unique insight into what we are to become.

Grading will be based on class attendance, a midterm and a class project. Course materials will consist of a course pack of readings for class discussion. There are no prerequisites for this course.

Most often this takes the form of an original paper of greater scope than is possible in an ordinary term paper, and it gives the student experience in conducting and writing up his or her own research. Students who are interested in joining the senior Honors program should consult with the departmental Honors advisor for biological anthropology. Previous participation in the college Honors program is not a prerequisite for joining the senior Honors program.
