Why Study Anthropology?

Anthropology is the study of human culture and its many forms in different societies both past and present. It tracks the evolution of culture far beyond its primate origins  Anthropology covers over two million years of prehistory, to historical and contemporary societies. There are two broad areas of Anthropology : archaeology (which has its own heading here) and social anthropology. Students who are interested in any discipline in sociology should consider taking some anthropology courses. Here you will find a variety of resources in many anthropological disciplines.

Resources for Religious Anthropology/Religions

The individual pages dealing with various religions contain links to sites which were created by the followers of that particular faith or objective third parties.  You will find no sites where one faith attacks another.  Here, each religious faith speaks only for itself.  However, because of the nature of the subject, there may be some controversial material which slips through as 'comparative' statements in order to more fully explain a belief system in contrast to another system.
