What is anthropology?

Anthropology is....Anthropology is the study of humanity. Anthropology has origins in the natural sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences. The term was first used by François Péron when discussing his encounters with Tasmanian Aborigines. The term "anthropology", pronounced, is from the Greek "human", "discourse" or "study".

Its basic questions concern: "What defines Homo sapiens?" "Who are the ancestors of modern Homo sapiens?" "What are humans' physical traits?" "How do humans behave?" "Why are there variations and differences among different groups of humans?" "How has the evolutionary past of Homo sapiens influenced its social organization and culture?" and so forth.

To define anthropology in laymen's terms: anthropology is the study of anything and everything 'human', from the way we procured food 10,000 years ago to the way we drive our cars today, and everything in between. Basically, if it has to do with humans, it is anthropological in nature.

The study of humans (and what it is to be human). Divided into 4 subfields: Sociocultural, Biological, Archaeological, and Linguistic.

How do Paleolithic people learn to adapt to there environment?

To Adapt themselves to their environment stone tools came in very handy to the Paleolithic people as they learned that tools could change their physical environment. These people also developed a better understanding of their environment, and learned which animals to hunt, what wild plants to eat, and what wild berries, nuts, fruits, and grains were safe to eat.

They also like to eat popcorn and regular corn and they used tree bark for floss. They also adapted to rain forests and they made their own raincoats out of leaves and tree bark from the tree of knowlege wich is pretty impressive.

Who are Caucasians?

Typically in the United States, the term "Caucasian" is simply a nicer way of saying "White" and both terms refer to people of European ancestry. There is a debate over whether these terms also encompass Hispanic People who do not have obvious Indigenous features, but this goes for both terms.

The only distinction between "White" and "Caucasian" is that "Caucasian" has the secondary use of referring to the roughly 20 million people from the Caucasus mountain region (southern Russia, Georgia (EURASIA), Armenia, and Azerbaijan).
