Anthropology in Practice

Anthropology in Practice

Exploring the human condition.

Editor's Selection: Excavations, Hurricanes, and Bonobos


This week you'll want to be sure you check out:

  • Reporting live from Rome, Katy Myers discusses some of the challenges with excavating inside urn—and what constitutes a person—at Bones Don't Lie.

  • At Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston makes a connection between naming practices and popular words—like violent weather systems.

  • At Evoanth, Adam Benton delves into what we might possible be able to learn about bonobo behaviors from their genome.

Until next time, folks. I'll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
