The best introduction to what’s fascinating and relevant about anthropology today

Our Origins does more than any other text to educate students about the value of anthropological study and the ways they can apply it in their everyday lives. 

Norton, more than any other publisher, promotes student engagement with anthropology. Norton continues to innovate with our unique “Anthropology at Work” and “Anthropology Matters” videos and text features that ensure students connect with the course material and understand the underlying science and why it matters. 

This pedagogy complements Larsen’s emphasis on introducing students to the most exciting and important discoveries and research happening in the field today.
