Anthropology Day!

February 16, 2017 is Anthropology Day!

It's an opportunity for anthropologists around the globe to share their enthusiasm for the discipline with the people around them

At Dartmouth, we'll be celebrating the day by opening our labs and offices for demonstrations and discussions about archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. If you can't make one of the open houses, stop by the fourth floor of Silsby Hall for a bite to eat and chat with the faculty about the discipline, about research opportunities and your own interest in Anthropology.
