Anthropology is the study of the biological and cultural diversity of humanity. American anthropology has four broad subfields. Archaeology examines the physical records of past cultures. Biological or physical anthropology is concerned with human evolution and modern human biological variation. Cultural anthropology focuses on the customs, traditions, and rituals of human societies. Linguistic anthropology explores the relationship between language and culture in past and present human societies.
