Exploring Biological Anthropology

An Integrated Lab Manual and Workbook

Frank L'Engle Williams

  • Includes 16 chapters that can easily be covered in one semester, all of which are explicitly designed to stimulate critical thinking skills and help students better understand the major concepts of biological anthropology
  • Each chapter is written in three parts: a background section on the lab topic; an introduction to the exercise; and a step-by-step lab, most of which are hands-on
  • Enhanced images from the Bioarchaeology Laboratory in the Department of Anthropology at Georgia State University (also included in full-color on an in-text DVD)
  • Five appendices provide a useful primate fossil record and geological time scale, learning assessment outcomes, a correlation chart that pairs the lab exercises to introductory texts, an optional lab using statistics, and lab materials needed for hands-on completion of the exercises
  • An Instructor's Manual on CD, available upon adoption, supplies model answers to the questions in each chapter
