Fossil evidence, artifacts, other archaeological materials (finish) -Laetoli footprints – not artifacts in the sense that they’re tools, but they are evidence -Lucy – a. afarensis – discovery told us that in 3 million years ago our ancestor was bipedal, found tools, evidence of cutting on bones which means that tools were used -fauna/flora – dating = tells us what kind of foods/predators there were at the time 2. Applications of relevant sciences -geology is required for anthropology -biomechanics – comparing anatomy of the bones and tissues – Look at whether something is efficient for bipedalism -Paleoclimatology – looks at climate change, what was the weather like at any one time; use flora/fauna to get the feel of how the weather was 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
