Anthropology is the study of human beings through archaeology, ethnology, linguistic, and biological anthropology. Anthropologists study cultures, languages, technology, arts, and human biology, past and present. MNA anthropologists partner with descendant communities and federal agencies on numerous archaeological and ethnographic research projects on the Colorado Plateau.
