Thursday 18th February 2016 is World Anthropology Day, and anthropologists across the globe are celebrating all things anthro. Yes, the study of humans now has its own international celebration day!
Universities, groups and workplaces can share their knowledge of anthropology through public workshops, blogs or presentations. Individual anthropologists or practitioners of anthropological methods can share photos, work and experiences through the #AnthroDay and #WorldAnthropologyDay tags on social media too.
Why not join in, or check them out on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram?
Here are some of my favourites:

@rockstaranthro shares a snap from her bones (biological anthropology) outreach workshop:
This was an amazing event! The case I created was based on the African Burial Ground found in lower Manhattan. For these students and teachers it meant so much to them to learn about the anthropology and resources in their own backyard! It made all the difference. Im so proud of these students! #AnthroDay #ExploreTogether #Mentor #anthropology
