In anthropology there are bridges worthy of discussion in a variety of ways. Interconnections are to be found not only within the discipline, among the various types of anthropologies, but also between the anthropological professional and others.
Paleoanthropology is a subdiscipline of anthropology. The book covers an introduction to paleoanthropology, early hominid fossils, early hominid behavior, hominids in oldowan, acheulean, middle paleolithic, upper paleolithic, and more.
