Anthropologists study the origins, culture, and behaviors of people.

They do this by examining artifacts, such as prehistoric tools, art, and fossils.

They also conduct field studies.

In the past few years, anthropologists have studied conditions in Native American reservations, or studied the effect of modernization on emerging cultures.

Some anthropologists choose to work in government or academia.

Other anthropologists teach or conduct research at universities.
