Welcome to the Department of Anthropology

The East Carolina University Department of Anthropology offers a global view of human evolution, adaptation and culture to promote a better understanding of the archaeological, biological, and cultural aspects of human diversity. These studies foster respect for the biological as well as the ethnic and cultural diversity present in human populations today. The anthropology faculty also work with faculty in other disciplines to assist in the development of interdisciplinary research and teaching programs which compliment the goals of the Department of Anthropology. As a special emphasis, the department supports curriculum development and faculty research and service into the prehistory, history, and lifeways of eastern North Carolinians.
