Exploring Anthropology in London

Spring 2017 Spring Break Study Abroad Trip

OVERVIEW

Rich in cultural history, London and its vicinity are explored this week by Anthropology majors, minors, and any other students interested in culture, history, art, architecture, and archaeology. Amazing collections of anthropological and archaeological artifacts are observed at famous London museums including the British Museum, the Museum of London and the Tower of London, building upon the techniques of participant observation learned in class. Program participants will visit Westminster Abbey, which includes the burial site of Charles Darwin, whose evolutionary theory is the foundation of anthropological research. Ventures away from London will include a day trip to Stonehenge to view the famous prehistoric World Heritage site, Avebury, a 5,000 year old stone monolith site, and Salisbury Cathedral that houses one of the copies of the Magna Carta. In exploring “modern London,” participants will experience such attractions as the London Eye and cultural venues at Southbank. Time is also set aside for cultural interactions at the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, British markets and landmarks. Anthropology Spring Break in London is experiencing 5,000 years of British civilization’s history from the Bronze Age to the Millennium.
