Biological Anthropology Freiburg

We are located in the natural sciences campus, near the university hospital (see map). It maintains its own library and a collection of casts from hominid fossil specimens, most of which are on public display. Our research covers a wide spectrum from forensics and bioarchaeology to clinical applications. We are teaching undergraduate courses for Biology students and contribute towards a masters programme in Interdisciplinary Anthropology. Our researchers engage in various activities and frequently appear in the media.

On this website you find information on our research, our staff and our teaching. Additional information, especially on teaching and our public outreach in Freiburg, might only be available in German. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff will be happy to assist you.
