Join Group

Group for anyone interested in anthropology. Ask questions, share anthropology related news or photos.


If you are an ancient astronaut theorist or believe in some kid of conspiracy theory, this is not the place for you. While we encourage discussion about cultures and purposes of structures and artifacts, please base your theories in actual science. Posting of Ancient Aliens or anything similar will result in being kicked out of the group without notification and being banned from the group. If anyone notices these types of posts, tag me or PM me and I will take appropriate action.


Also, archaeologists don't dig dinosaurs. While we are usually interested in dinosaurs as well, please post your dino related posts in "Paleontology " Group

"Anthropology and Archaeology Group" Fascinating! Love to see human ingenuity defy the odds and make amazing (to me) discoveries on how ancient events may have happened! Never saw this version on Nat Geo- it should be! "
