American Museum of Natural History Profiles Anthropology Curator Brian Richmond

The American Museum of Natural History, located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is one of the world’s largest and most celebrated museums. In this short profile video from the museum, Dr. Brian Richmond, a curator in the Division of Anthropology, discusses biological anthropology and some of his findings.

As a biological anthropologist, he approaches the study of humans from a biological perspective, using fossil evidence to learn about human origins and the evolution of the human body. His discovery of the fossilized footprints of our human ancestors has propelled biomechanical studies of the ancient human foot, and informed our ideas of our ancestors’ behaviors.
