Fieldwork in Hadar, Ethiopia

Addresses the early evolution and ecological variation of Australopithecus (3.0–3.4 myr) and the origin of Homo and stone-tool making (2.3 myr). In 2007, this field project began to operate as ASU’s Hadar Field School, which has in three field seasons enrolled 46 undergraduates from ASU and other universities across the U.S. in a rigorous semester-abroad curriculum on field methods in human origins research.
