A museum display of fossil hominid skulls

Paleoanthropology (or palaeoanthropology) combines the study of paleontology and physical anthropology. It is the study of human evolution.[1]

The subject is also closely connected to archaeology.[2] The evidence of tool-making and other activities shows the subtle but important changes in thinking that early humans went through.[3]
