Areas of Study
Our archeology faculty is particularly strong in expertise on the U.S. Southeast, the Great Plains, and the Middle East. A major emphasis, in collaboration with the Arkansas Archeological Survey, is public archeology.
Biological anthropology is broadly defined as encompassing the present and past nature and evolution of humankind and other primates. Our faculty are particularly strong in dental anthropology, biomechanics, and advanced quantitative techniques.
Cultural anthropologists focus on issues such as ethnicity, gender, class, religion, and public culture as shaped by history and migration.
