Introduction to Physical Anthropology SELU ANTH 110 Week Two Lecture Notes Our Leg Bones The first three bones we will learn are the femur, tibia, and fibula. See textbook Pg. 518 for reference. The femur is the largest and heaviest human bone. The ball joint  connects to the hip and allows for a wide range of movement. The  shaft of the bone is triangular if viewed from a cross section. The tibia is the 2  largest human bone and also triangular. The base  of the tibia forms the inner ankle. The fibula is positioned by the tibia and much thinner, protected by  muscle. The base forms the inner ankle. Monday’s lecture will cover the patella and arm bones. What is Anthropology? Anthropology is a social science that means “the study of man.” It has a holistic approach  towards its study. It is qualitative, descriptive, direct, and cross­cultural. Anthropology includes  field research conducted in the local language, meaning anthropologists must know the language  or have a translator. Anthropologists study hands­on from a first person perspective (called  participant observation). Anthropology Has Four Sub Disciplines ­ Cultural ­ Linguistic ­ Archaeology ­ Physical; this includes paleo, osteology, pathology, forensics, and primatology Creation and Evolution ­ Ethnography is a detailed description of a culture ­ Creation stories vary. Each culture views them as sacred. They are explanatory, but from  the view of faith. ­ Anthropology focuses on empirical evidence but does not discount creation stories. ­ Beginning in the 1500s there was a huge increase in interest in natural science ­ Archbishop James Usher was the first to try and date the age of the Earth. Using the  Bible, he estimated the Earth to be about 6,000 years old. ­ Galileo suggested that the solar system was not based around the Earth, but actually the  sun (heresy at the time) ­ Linnaeus founded the genus + species naming system. It wasn’t objective – based more  on views enforced from the Bible – but it was a start. ­ Comte Buffon believed that the Garden of Eden had been located in what is now Paris. He viewed those closest to Paris as the most evolved of the species. The further away from  Paris you were, the less evolved you were.
