An Introduction to Anthropology: An Intensive Study of Mythology
Spring Term 2013

It is now known that symbolic culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, in a social revolution whose echoes can still be heard in myths and rituals around the world. These talks are a general introduction to anthropology, including the latest findings from genetics, evolutionary biology, primatology, cave painting researh and archaeology. There are good local pubs and there is always time for discussion and socialising.
