From the Paper
Anthropology is a branch of biology in which one studies the evolutionary process, heredity, the differences of sex and physiology of races (Routledge Library Editions, 1951. The Egyptian mummies, the ruined civilizations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro are all related to the study of anthropology. Scientists have been able to unveil the hidden mysteries related to the evolution of human beings as well as various species of animals. In 1858 William Parker Foulke discovered the first ever dinosaur skeleton in New Jersey where previous workers had seen bones and teeth of an animal that half resembled to the lizard and bird, a Hadrosaurus. From then on various theories about evolution have taken place. One of the biggest theories was why and how dinosaurs did suddenly become extinct.
