Anthropology is dedicated to the study of phenomena related to the human being, so it considers ancient, original and present societies. This science covers the evolution of the human species, the diversity of ethnicities, the diversity of cultures, social customs and beliefs, and the processes of transformation, among many other aspects.
Studies on society, human beings and their behavior date back to classical antiquity through the thoughts of the great philosophers, mainly the Greek Herodotus, considered the father of history and anthropology.
There were also the stories of travelers, traders and missionaries, who told about the customs of the natives of the new lands, following the voyages of Columbus and other navigators around the world.
From the 18th century onwards, research in the social and cultural sphere gained ground. However, Anthropology as a science originated in the second half of the 19th century.
Our list consists of more than 15 books on Anthropology in PDF format. All books are in the public domain or have been made available for free distribution.
