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.

Four boxes of materials from the Department of Anthropology were received in 1988. These cover the years 1966-1970, and are not listed. See also the Prof. Kenneth Kidd fonds and the Prof. Norman Townsend fonds.
