Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences. Sociocultural Anthropology: how people live in particular places and how they organize, govern and create meaning. Biological Anthropology: how humans adapt to diverse environments, how biological and cultural processes work together to shape growth, development and behaviour (origins and evolution). Archaeology: the study of past peoples and cultures, from the deepest prehistory to the recent past, through the analysis of material remains, ranging from artefacts and evidence of past environments to architecture and landscapes. Linguistics: the many ways people communicate and how language is linked to how we see the world and how we relate to each other. How we use language to build and share meaning, to form or change identities, and to make or change relations of power.
