Welcome! I want to welcome you to Anthropology and the 2014-2015 school year. I am very excited to start this school year with you. Anthropology is a broad subject area to study. In this course we will focus on Anthropology & Folklore. Folklore plays an important role in society. It is the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community.
