Students and alumni in caves
Nate Dominy, Professor of Anthropology; and Jeremy DeSilva, Associate Professor of Anthropology

This past November, 15 Dartmouth students put their classroom learning to the test when they journeyed to South Africa for the final three weeks of Anthropology 70: Experiencing Human Origins and Evolution. Students used newfound skills to advance independent research projects across a wide range of settings, including caves, deserts, and coasts. Hear from Professor of Anthropology Nate Dominy and Associate Professor of Anthropology Jeremy DeSilva, who developed and led this unique course, and learn about their own research in South Africa and how it informs their philosophy toward experiential learning at Dartmouth.
