Anthropology Club

"The word anthropology itself tells the basic story--from the Greek anthropos ("human") and logia ("study")--it is the study of humankind, from its beginnings millions of years ago to the present day. Anthropologists may study ancient Mayan hieroglyphics, the music of African Pygmies, and the corporate culture of a U.S. car manufacturer. But always, the common goal links these vastly different projects: to advance knowledge of who we are, how we came to be that way--and where we may go in the future." (from the American Anthropological Association website)

The WVC Anthropology club strives to be an organization of individuals curious and focused on the history and story of the peoples that evolved from prehistoric times through today. We strive to cover all areas of Anthropology from physical to cultural and the field of archaeology and anything that falls between or around. We strive to be a welcoming organization for those wishing to become members or a helping hand for those who simply have a question or need a little help with clarification of a concept, or for those who need help with projects and homework.
