After spending fall term studying how anthropologists piece together the story of human evolution, 15 students traveled to South Africa to conduct scientific research of their own.
The students were enrolled in the anthropology class “Experiencing Human Origins and Evolution,” taught by Associate Professor Jeremy DeSilva and Professor Nathaniel Dominy. Over the course of three weeks in South Africa, the students and professors traveled to significant dig sites—and even uncovered a fossil while participating in a dig at a World Heritage site.
