Anthropologist » Overview


Anthropologists provide insight into diverse civilizations throughout the history. They decipher and interpret artefacts and ancient languages of past cultures. In a typical day's work, anthropologists examine, analyse, report on and compare different cultures and provide insights on how they grow and interact. An anthropologist's work helps us to understand the present by taking a step back into the past - how people live in modern life versus the basic systems of interaction of our primitive past.

Anthropologists can specialise in different areas and some take a cross-disciplinary approach to the field. Areas of interest include linguistics, chemistry, nutrition, and behavioural science.
