Rosetta Stone

The Rosetta Stone is a stone slab inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis, Egypt in 196 BC. The decree appears in three languages: the upper text is Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the middle is Demotic and the lowest is Ancient Greek. The slab presents the same text is all three languages and so provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.


While anthropology is a multifaceted field, a number of exciting STEM careers fall under the umbrella of physical anthropology. For instance, biological anthropology deals with human evolution and the adaptations of humans to environmental conditions. Biological anthropologists uncover the driving forces that explain human diversity! While anthropologists are often looking to the past for clues, however some biological and cultural anthropologists are currently working with ecologists to examine the impacts of climate change on human health, land use, and economics. Exploring a career in anthropology requires a storyteller’s talent to follow the clues.
