Anthropology is defined as the study of human science and an Anthropologist is a researcher who makes the study about the human development, relations, about their origin and type of race they belong to. They research about the characteristics, culture and habits of the Homo sapiens in different continents. They also investigate about ancient civilizations and cultural habits of the humans.
They are similar to archeologists as they too study many languages in order to make a deep study in that particular national. Thus Anthropologists are muti-linguists. Anthropologists specialize in different contexts such as biological, sociological, cultural and linguistic. Biological anthropologists are concerned in the study of the genetics and anatomy of humans, whereas social anthropologist makes societal studies of humans. They do research on every single aspect of a human life, and they publish the results as journals and textbooks for reference. They serve as the source for the study of psychology.
