Back in the 1990’s a “New” Australian member realised that she didn’t know much about Australian history, actually she always said that until she came here by accident that she didn’t realise Australia had a history!
That led to her research becoming an on-going ‘class’ the members of which knew their history. The result of that participation led to the first anthropology course.
We are all interested in the past, and different civilizations, and we decide amongst ourselves what we would like to learn about next, then access courses from around the world, usually from Universities.
So far amongst many we have learnt about, are the Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Venetians, Egyptians, Aztecs, Celts, Portuguese explorers, Romans, Renaissance Italy, Victorian England, South America & Egypt.
As you can see we are interested in just about everything.
U3A Anthropology Group
The October session of Anthropology will be Minuscule “The Private Life of insects”.
Come with us on a journey into the secret and magical world of insects. The bright and colourful characters will delight you as they go about their eccentric adventures.
Mixing 3D animated characters with stunning real life locations, Miniscule is a series that children of all ages and adults will enjoy again and again.
Rediscover your favourite characters the ladybug, the little spider, the greedy flies and the melancholy mosquito…. but beware of the newcomers: the gang of the red ants!
Members who are unable to attend the meeting at Wellington Street, are able to borrow a disk on Anthropology from the U3A office by signing it out. There are 41 disks on a range of subjects.
