  2. Anthropology Anthropology is the study of what makes us humans. Anthropologists take a broad approach to understanding the many aspects of the human experience, which we call holism. They examine the past, through archeology, to see how human groups lived hundreds or thousands of years ago and what was important to them. www.homeworkminutes.com
