The Department of Anthropology first began operation in 1965. Anthropology at Trent is an interdisciplinary pursuit, including biological, cultural and applied anthropology, linguistics and archaeology. The Department provides a variety of courses, both practical and theoretical, ranging from the scientific to the humanistic.
